This kit has everything you need to ferment your own veggies to make pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi and more! Lacto-fermenting vegetables (such as classic dill pickles or sauerkraut) used to be all about food preservation and eating out-of-season produce, but it can mean so much more. Fermenting veggies gives new life and flavor to the food plucked from your backyard garden or bought at your local farmers market. It’s easy, it’s fun, and it’s amazingly healthy. Perfect for both the first time fermentor and someone who has been doing it for years. The fermentation weight is a heavy glass weight that keeps your vegetables fully submerged during fermentation and has a hole in it so you can easily get it in and out of the jar. Using an airlock means that you don't have to worry about "burping" your ferment and keeps everything you want in the jar in, and everything you don't want out. Kit includes: 1/2 Gallon Glass Fermenting Jar, Glass Fermentation Weight, Lid, Airlock and Kosher Salt. Great unique gift idea!
