Portage Library to host Fermented Foods Workshop July 10

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library will host its monthly program in the Natural Health and Wellness series from 6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 10.

Everyone is invited to a Fermented Foods Workshop presented by Chassell-based family wellness chiropractor Dr. Jinny Sirard. She will discuss the history and tremendous health benefits of cultured and fermented foods, and she will describe how to make them. Participants will get recipes for making their own yogurt, fermented vegetables, and fermented drinks. Samples of several foods will be available for tasting including beet kvass, yogurt, sauerkraut, and fermented vegetables.

Dr. Jinny works at Superior Chiropractic Associates and has been making fermented foods for more than five years. She loves to share what she knows about how to make these foods and the health benefits one can expect to enjoy from eating them.

The Natural Health and Wellness series is held on the second Thursday of each month. All library programs are free, and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit www.pldl.org.
