On Saturday, November 9, our Dear Berri has reserved the community room at her condo building for us to get together, chat and make a couple of easy Thanksgiving Ferments that will help with your holiday digestion. The plan is to meet at 1 pm, put together a Cranberry Relish and Celery "Stuffing" and enjoy each other's company.
We'll make a simple cranberry relish that is a conversion of traditional cooked cranberry sauce to a raw, fermented relish with oranges. The Celery "Stuffing" tastes just like traditional stuffing without the bread so is great for low carb diets. Both ferments add friendly bacteria to your meal that will aid digestion in the most flavorful way!
For the ferments, please plan on bringing: A chef knife, (2) wide-mouth quart jars with lids (or similar), 1 1/2 pounds celery and 8 - 10 fresh sage leaves, 16 ounces fresh cranberries, 2 thin skinned mandarin oranges (like Little Cuties), and 1 cup dried cranberries (juice sweetened if you can find them but don't worry if you can't and just bring regular sugar sweetened). I'll supply the sea salt and a couple of other additions along with bowls and cutting boards.
Please PM Berri to let her know that you are coming and she will give you the address. We may want to plan to bring a snack or drink to share too.
We look forward to seeing this coming weekend.
