This weekend I had a great time at the “Heritage Harvest Festival.” It’s held at Monticello in Charlottesville every fall. Wow! I was inspired to attend because there is a wonderful seed exchange amongst gardeners. In addition to trading seeds there’s also great food, music, and an endless variety of farmers and artisans, non-profits and so much more. I tasted the most amazing homemade “mint” Kombucha. I can’t stop thinking about it and of course I’m trying to figure out how I can make it! Raw Cane Sugar could make the difference.
There was a short but terribly rich workshop held by “Sandor Katz” another fermentation guru and author, “Wild Fermentation”. Thanks to Sandor I started making our own bread this year. Every week trying to perfect it! On my way home I purchased a local head of cabbage and immediately starting fermenting it with apples, carrots and beets from our garden. Virginia is rich with tasty events and passionate people. We’re treasuring our time here.
