Kickstart your health regime this year by learning how to make Tepache – a delicious fermented Mexican drink!

Tepache is a live-cultured sparkling drink rooted in old school Mexican fermenting traditions, which pairs tangy pineapple with spicy cinnamon and cloves. Tabache is great for gut health, easy to make and thirst-quenching! Better yet, Tabache uses the the skins of pineapples that are usually throw away making this a low-waste kitchen recipe.

In this hands-on interactive workshop, Lorraine from South London Ferments will show you how to make Tepache. You will learn how to combine the ingredients and how long to leave your ferment.

This is a wonderful opportunity to come together to create something delicious. If you wish to make your own Tepache drink during the workshop, make sure you have ready all the materials listed below.

You will need:

1 pineapple

Brown Sugar (muscovado or a mix of molasses and white sugar is good. White sugar is also fine if you can’t find brown sugar)

3 cloves

1 cinnamon stick

A clip-top jar (1 litre or larger)

A muslin cloth (or similar) to cover the jar and elastic band

A clip-top bottle
