Yogurt and Kefir: a Probiotic Party

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 27 at 10:00am (15 Seats) or

THURSDAY, MARCH 1 at 6:30pm (20 Seats)

You can spend hundreds of dollars buying probiotics that may or may not work, or you can add effective superfoods to your family’s diet for less than 5 minutes a day for a fraction of the cost! Come learn how to make yogurt 2 ways: with or without heat. Have a steady supply of delicious creamy yogurt teeming with beneficial bacteria that you can flavor yourself and spare your family the chemicals and sweeteners found in pasteurized (dead) commercial yogurts. Learn what Kefir is and how it can transform your gut flora, improve digestion, and boost your immune system and energy levels. Learn not only how to make it, but how to turn it into a daily part of your routine and how to get your kids to eat it without even knowing it! Yogurt and Kefir can be easily turned into a soft cheese. You will see how to make it at home with a demonstration of different tools you may already have around the house.

In this class you will see the stages of fermentation that turn raw milk into probiotic superfoods. You will take home everything you need to start yogurt, including a gallon of fresh, raw milk and a yogurt starter kit.  There will be fresh kefir starts available for purchase, so no need to activate and start your own.  And it isn’t a party without food, so expect to taste some delicious living cultured food, from smoothies to salad dressings.

Beginning Broth and Beyond

THURSDAY, MARCH 15 at 6:30pm (20 Seats)

No doubt you’ve heard the craze around bone broth. Everyone’s doing it, or should I say Everyone’s selling it? But unlike food fads that come and go, broth is a timeless home remedy for just about all that ails you. You can buy expensive broth supplements, powders and bottled broths, or you can come see what your grandma already knew and did for pennies a day.  Why is broth so good for you? What is the difference between bone broth and meat stock and when should you do which?  How much broth do you need to consume for therapeutic benefits? How do you make it? How do you store it? How do you get your family to even like it?

In this class, we will discuss all these things and more.  We will demonstrate different ways to cook broth with tools you already have at home.  We will talk about ways to build this into your busy routine so it doesn’t overwhelm you. We will talk about different ways to incorporate broth in your daily diet without getting bored of it.  And of course, there will be tastings!

You will go home with a pack of grass fed bones, enough to start a batch immediately.  You will get recipes and instructions to help you through your first batch and beyond.  You will have the tools to start healing and sealing your gut lining, saving hundreds of dollars a year, and improve the overall health of your family.
