Say goodbye to dull, lifeless pickles and vinegar solutions and hello to fermentation! The same chemical process that turns grape juice into wine and grain into booze can transform a humble cucumber into a deli-style pickle (minus the alcohol of course). The kit includes a glass fermentation jar, an airtight lid, a weight, kosher salt, and a black tea bag. All you have to do is follow the instructions and you’ll transform your farmer’s market finds into the perfect accompaniment for a big, fat BLT.
Grab a kit for your favorite gardener, wrap up several as Christmas gifts for everyone you know who’s handy in the kitchen, or treat yourself to a present that’s fun and functional — plus you get to eat the results!
The easiest way to make lacto-fermented pickles at home. Your favorite kinds of pickles—from deli-style full sours and half sours, to classic dills and fiery hot pickles—all get their signature snappy crunch and tart pucker not from vinegar, but from fermentation. Specifically lacto-fermentation.
This completely reusable kit will help you master the art of pickling. Simply cover your cucumbers with brine, recreate the effects of a traditional oak barrel by adding a black tea for tannins, top with your lid and airlock, and you’ll have crisp, unbeatable pickles in just a few days.
The possibilities of what you can pickle are endless.
Plus with this kit, you can also make kraut, kimchi, and fermented hot sauce at home!
