Fermented foods talk set for today

ESPERANCE — Ed Radle, a chemist and master gardener, will explain the basics of fermentation from 10 a.m. to noon today in the meeting house at Landis Arboretum, 174 Lape Road.

Fermented foods have been around for thousands of years, according to a news release. In addition to being a method of preserving foods using yeast (wine, beer) and bacteria (sauerkraut, yogurt), fermentation produces foods that are rich sources of probiotics, organisms that are gaining recognition as beneficial to intestinal and overall health.

Admission for members will be $5 per person or $15 per family, and for non-members, $15 per person or $25 per family.
