Cathy Hope Fermentation Workshop
Cathy Hope, founder of Iris Herbal came down from Taos to teach a fermentation workshop. It was fantastic! First we learned about the history of food and the diets of people who came before industrialized society. We talked about fermenting with whey, lacto and wild fermentation. Then we got hands on and made a salve, a tincture, liniment and fermented sauerkraut. Cathy is an excellent speaker and teacher and her herbal products are fantastic. We blogged not long ago about her deodorant which Mikey and I swear by. We also love her yarrow liniment and tinctures.I loved her extract record form, something she uses to track each thing she makes, and so I posted it for you. Bravo Cathy!
