The fermenting crock pot with lid and stone lets you preserve your own vegetables, so you can enjoy them all year round. The design of this traditional stoneware crock is the same as ones used all over Europe for hundreds of years.
By far the most popular use for these crocks is to ferment sauerkraut. But you can also make homemade pickles – try whole pickled baby cucumbers, or preserve a bumper harvest of vegetables by making a mixed pickle of cauliflower, peppers, onions and carrots.
Fermenting vegetables is a great way to cut down on food waste, as well as opening up new ways to enjoy your favourite vegetables. And unlike commercially produced pickles that undergo pasteurisation, homemade pickles lose none of their nutritional value.
The deep channel around the rim is filled with water, which creates an air-tight seal once the lid is put on. The stone weighs down the vegetables, squeezing out the moisture so that the pickles stay nice and crunchy. It also keeps most of the vegetables underneath the liquid that’s forced out, so they don’t re-absorb too much during fermentation.
The fermenting crock pot has an internal capacity of 5 litres – ideal for big batches of pickles the whole family can enjoy. It includes a recipe for traditional Polish sauerkraut to get you started.
