Small Fermentation Crock

37.00

I’ve been getting more and more into fermentation these days. From saurcraut to pickled okra to lacto fermented shitake mushrooms. I really like having a small fermentation vessel on hand to test ideas and recipes without spending a bunch of money/time on a large batch.

This particular crock will hold about 2 pints of liquid.

The lid and gallery are designed to make a water seal. You fill the gallery with salt water which allows carbon dioxide to bubble out bu no air getting in. This helps unwanted bacteria or mold to grow on your ferment. I have plenty of recipes which I am happy to share or if you would like to chat about fermenting then I am here.

In general my method is to simply cut up what I am intending to ferment (lets say peppers), add them to the jar, weigh the quantity of peppers and then add a 2% salt brine. Cover the peppers with brine and weigh them down with a ziplock bag (also containing salt solution, in case it breaks). Pop some brine in the gallery, lid on and let rip.

The concoction will get sourer as time goes on, and is very temperature dependent. At 80 degrees F you might end up at a tasty result in a few days to a week, but at 60 degrees it might be more like 2/3 weeks.
