Sunday Oct 12, 2014 11am to 3pm, Happy Hour 3-4 pm at Primal Knowledge in Woodsboro, MD (Just outside Frederick MD)
Fermented & alcoholic drinks have been a part of the human experience for tens of thousands of years. They were made for sacred ceremony, as potent nutritious food, and as medicine. Today, alcoholic beverages are, like much of our modern foodstuff, processed and pale chemical concoctions. Lets spend an afternoon together exploring alcohol as a powerful vehicle for preserving the fruits of the Earth. After the class, invite your friends/sig other for a Cordial Tasting Happy Hour! Explore creative ways to make nutritious beverages from the cordials we will make during class! Recipes provided.
Bring a pint jar and enough brandy or vodka to fill it, and you will leave with a Cordial that you start in class.
