I’m giving a sauerkraut workshop on Friday, November 27th, so come on over and bring all the cabbage you didn’t cook for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s part of the Buy Nothing Day celebration at the Non*Mart art show and it’s free.

The party lasts from 4 pm to 6 pm at Y2Y Gallery at 251 Balboa Street in San Francisco. I suspect the workshop will start at 5. We won’t be providing materials, so please bring your own:

– a widemouth mason jar (quart or half gallon) with a lid.
– a medium or small head of cabbage. It is helpful if you know how much your cabbage weighs. Check your receipt or ask the farmstand to weigh it when you buy it.
– a teaspoon of caraway and/or cumin seeds per quart.
– a mandoline or grater with a straight blade to slice, not grate, the cabbage. If you do not have a mandoline, we can share.
– a mixing bowl.

Kraut in a bowl
I’ve always considered pickling an art and now I have some justification. My sauerkraut will be part of the art exhibition Non*Mart, opening November 6 and running till January 15, 2010 at Y2Y Gallery at 251 Balboa Street in San Francisco.

The theme of the show is bartering and everything on display will be available for trade, including the kraut. Come taste samples of it fresh and alive at the party from 6 to 8 pm on the opening day. I’ll have more ready to trade, and I can always make more.

I got inspired to apply to the show after starting a happy trade with Clare Judith Bowers for one of her paintings.
