Come and see us in Christchurch on Sunday April 14 at the Fermentation Fantasia.
Fermentation pots (or crocks) for Sauerkraut and pickled vegetables like Kimchi and sauerkraut recipe
The special feature of fermentation pots is the lid fitting in a circular grove that is filled with water like a moat. This water seal is a fermentation lock and allows fermentation gasses to escape, without allowing air to enter the pot. This feature reduces dramatically the formation of mould inside the pot. Half-moon weights are supplied with each pot. They keep the vegetables covered in liquid for long conservation.
