Fermentation Workshop

Make your own fermented foods to boost your health and pocket book! | taught by Corina Sahlin Watch Intro Video

Course description

Making your own fermented foods will not only dramatically increase your health, but also save you lots of money!

Why spend $4 for a fancy, organic Kombucha drink at the store if you can make a gallon of it at home for around $1?

You can make a gorgeous-looking, perfect-tasting loaf of fresh European style bread for mere cents instead of buying a loaf for $6.

Why spend $6 for a jar of organic sauerkraut if you can make a jar for the cost of a cabbage and a little salt?

Making your own greek yogurt saves you more than double the price what you would buy it for at the store.

And how about the freshness and higher quality of making your own ferments, let alone you can't even find some of these at stores (beet kvass, anyone?).

Learn to make

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Beet Kvass
  • Sauerkraut
  • Kombucha
  • No knead bread

Some health benefits of fermented foods:

* They preserve nutrients in food and break the food down to a more digestible form. A proper balance of gut bacteria and enough digestive enzymes helps you absorb more of the nutrients in the foods you eat.

* Fermented foods are potent detoxifiers and contain much higher levels of probiotics than probiotic supplements, making them ideal for optimizing your gut flora. In addition to helping break down andeliminate heavy metals and other toxins from your body, beneficial gut bacteria perform a number of surprising functions, including:

  • Mineral absorption, and producing nutrients such as B vitamins and vitamin K2 (vitamin K2 and vitamin D are necessary for integrating calcium into your bones and keeping it out of your arteries, thereby reducing your risk for coronary artery disease and stroke5)
  • Preventing obesity and diabetes, and regulating dietary fat absorption
  • Lowering your risk for cancer
  • Improving your mood and mental health
  • Preventing acne

* They improve and strengthen the immune system.

My students are loving this course! Here are some testimonials:

"Corina does an amazing job teaching this class. A picture may be worth a thousand words but a video is better yet. Kudos to Corina, and her husband filming, for creating a fun and informative class. It shows what things look like in each stage of the process, and Corina is great at explaining each step in great detail. It was well worth the money to learn the proper way to do fermenting and not waste valuable materials and time experimenting." - Pete S.

"Loved doing this course. I have wanted to learn how to get more live and healthful foods in my body. I found the course to be easy to navigate and with valuable information. Good support and tasty results!" - Michael S.

"The No-Knead Bread is absolutely delicious, and the kids love to help make it! Corina makes the fermentation workshop so easy to navigate with her pdf and video instructions for all five recipes. The workshop's facebook group provides even more support as well as a sense of camaraderie, which boosts my confidence as I make these recipes for the first time. It feels terrific to expand the scope of my cooking. I can't wait to eat the sauerkraut which led me here in the first place!" - Allison S.

"To be honest, I thought that fermentation sounded a little bit unappetizing and very difficult. My daughter loves those kombucha drinks you get at the store, but they're outrageously expensive and contain heaven knows what. So I decided that in defense of my budget, I'd take this course and learn how to make kombucha. Well, I was STUNNED at the wide variety of foods you can preserve this way. I have been making yogurt for quite some time, but all the rest of it was new to me. And the big shock: it looks incredibly easy! The instructor is positively charming and makes the whole thing look like great fun. I can't wait to get started! I strongly recommend this course to anyone interested in saving money, traditional foods, and good health." - Daisy L.

The Joy Of Fermenting

by Christine Mitchell
Thank you for inviting us into your home electronically. I can feel the good vibes. This is such a fun way to learn fermenting skills. The videos are very easy to follow and I liked them so much watched a couple of times. My husband said the bread is the best he has ever had, and considering I have made bread for 45 years and won awards at fairs thats saying a lot. After your courses I can now fly off on my own..

Now I'm an Urban Homesteader!

by Ann Manatt
Corina is such a shining example of living the way we all should aspire to. Living her dreams, living close to the earth ... I love how she brings all her wisdom together in her courses to help us take leaps into a new way of living. This fermented bread recipe CHANGED my life! I don't tolerate modern wheat + fast rising yeast very well, but Corina's recipe is so easy and fabulous. On to Beet Kvass ...

Fantastic way to get fermenting!

by Sacha Buller
I've been an armchair fermenter for years, reading and imagining other people's fermentation adventures. Sure, I'd done a little sauerkraut. I had a six-month love affair with some kefir grains. I'd made some sourdough starter. But really, I needed a kick in the pants to make fermentation a part of my daily life, and Corina really did it! Her instructions are simple, easy-to-follow, and very practical. No fancy water locks or heating pads. After all those books I read, it was Corina's course that got me going. I've now made many batches of delicious Greek yogurt, very tasty kombucha (which I foolishly worried wouldn't taste as good as the pricey store-bought kombucha), and a loaf of bread that was so beautiful that I shouted four-letter words of joy. If you're fermentation-curious, even if you know a thing or two about fermenting, let Corina hold your hand and show you the way. You'll be fermenting delicious food in no time.

Many, Many Thanks!

The course is thorough and engaging. I appreciate the background information and clear directions. The eBooks are enhanced with the videos. Corina's passion for sharing her homesteading skills comes through. I can't wait for the next course!

Easy, informational, and fun!

by Leah Lambert
Absolutely fantastic information that is easy to follow. Great pictures and videos. The outcome is nutritional food and drink that is incredibly tasty! I have always shied away from making bread, because I found it intimidating. The no-knead bread is SO easy that I am stunned with the outcome -- a rustic-looking loaf that has a chewy crust, and very moist inside. Corina helps with everything from acquiring inexpensive equipment, to detailed instructions, to yummy recipes that incorporate the fruits of your labor. What a delight!

Fun and Engaging!

by Michelle Van Doren
I love watching the videos before I read the eBooks - you can see just how simple it really is before reading the step-by-step instructions. Corina has a great down-to-earth approach and you can tell she is HAVING FUN! You will too.
