  2. Creative Kimchi

    February 28, 2015 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!

    What you put in your body directly affects your health.  What you put ON your body does the same, too!  Your skin, your largest organ, is the barrier for your body against pathogens, dirt, and foreign objects.  It is also incredibly absorbent, taking in what is put on it and bringing it into the body and bloodstream.

    For this reason, it’s very important to know what the effects of your personal care products are!  Many mainstream personal care product ingredients are unregulated and created from petrochemicals and harsh materials.  Many products need counter-products (shampoo/conditioner, soap/lotion), and marketing helps to create an image of need around certain products (deoderant, perfume, cosmetics).

    Use healthy, whole foods on and in your body to bring you to better health, and be aware of how they are affecting your body and health.  Ingredients such as olive oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, baking soda, aloe juice, apple cider vinegar, peppermint, lavender, beeswax, and honey can be blended together to create effective products and tasty, nourishing foods.

    Join Andrea at the Eco Collective to learn the basics of creating natural skincare remedies for the coming spring season. Identify where your own skin could use a boost, then indulge in a local honey and clay mask to purify and detoxify your skin. Andrea shows you how to create a customized toner to balance your skin’s pH, before sharing her secrets for mixing up basic products like lavender-scented deodorant, a moisturizing hand salve and a hair rinse made with dried herbs & spices. Leave armed with samples of nourishing, all-natural products and the know-how to mix up your own concoctions at home.
