  1. Herbal Bitters & Medicinal Tinctures 5/14/16

    April 2, 2016 by Gaea


    One drop brings a universe of flavor into your world.

    “Bitters” are infusions of herbs, roots, flowers, and barks in alcohol used to add flavor and help stimulate digestion – used as aperitifs, in cocktails, in water, or taken drop by drop medicinally. Flavorful bitters can be a double whammy ; find out how a delicious addition to a cocktail can pack a medicinal punch! In this class with Andrea of Edible Alchemy, learn how to make tinctures & infusions with alcohol or vinegar bases out of local and global plants. Learn the basics of flavor blending & taste a few Edible Alchemy blends to pick apart how flavors meld together to satisfy all aspects of the tongue. We’ll craft a cocktail punch together with EA bitters & sip on it while everyone creates their own blends from pre-infused ‘simples’ (one herb infusions) to take home.

    Then, leave to share your knowledge of bitters round tables all over & start your own herbal bitter kitchen apothecary!

    Provided: ingredients to craft 1 herbal tincture, a dropper bottle to put it in, and samples of our own proprietary blends + an info sheet with a few basic recipes to take home.
    Edible Alchemy loves to upcycle bottles – please bring clean bottles with lids of any size and shape for us to repurpose!

  2. Creative Kimchi 4/2 and 4/16

    March 10, 2016 by Gaea


    Ferment for health!  Ferment for taste!  Ferment for radical self-sustainability!

    Kimchi is a traditional Korean ferment, a side dish famously eaten on… well, everything. It can be spicy, sweet, garlic-y, red hot, salty, spiced, or any combination of the above. It’s guaranteed to be mouthwatering, however you flavor it.

    Traditional ingredients include napa cabbage, cucumber, radish, green onion, garlic and ginger, though most vegetables and fruits can be used. The creation then goes through a fermentation process where microbes transform the mix of spices and vegetables into a flavor-loaded, vitamin-packed, super-good-for-you condiment or side dish. This process takes one to three weeks, exercising your patience. Rest assured, the wait is well worth it.

    In this class, we will experiment with a variety of traditional and non-traditional vegetables and spices to create your very own recipe in class. As much produce as possible will be sourced by Edible Alchemy Foods Co-op from local area farmers using sustainable means of agriculture. Other produce used will be organic. We’ll sample a few varieties of kimchi during the class, to help inspire.

    Bring home your own kimchi creation, with instructions on how to continue the fermentation process, and a whole bunch of ideas of how to eat your kimchi once finished!
