Hot Sauce Making for Beginners 🌶🔥
Wed, 29 Sep 2021 (AEST)
What To Expect
Some like it hot... 'cause everything is better with a little fire! 😎 If you're one who loves hot sauce more than the food you slather it on, then this workshop is for you! 🌶
In this workshop you'll learn the history and technique of fermented hot sauce making. By the end of the session you'll have two hot sauces brewing away in your kitchen, no fancy gear or experience needed. We'll be making a zesty Green Apple Jalepeño hot sauce & a Habanero Carrot hot sauce. 🥕 Both are fabulous, fresh & easy!
Besides being affordable and easy to make, fermented hot sauces are filled with gut-loving probiotics, vitamins, and antioxidants. They add a delightful zing to burgers, pizza, soups, toasties, chilli, and more. No matter what the question, the answer should always be HOT SAUCE! 🔥
All participants will be e-mailed the recipes before the class - please have these accessible for the session. The Zoom link will be sent in the same e-mail.
