We don’t mean to brag, but this present is kind of a big dill. There are a lot of condiments and sandwich accompaniments in the world, but no bottle of ketchup or handful of shredded lettuce can compare to the sweet, tart, crunchy magic of a high-quality pickle. Whether you’re a passionate pickle enthusiast who doesn’t ever seem to have enough jars of the sour veggies in the fridge or a home cook and budding canner eager to try your hand at a new foodie-themed project, this Pickle Making Kit is for you.
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!SPECIFICATION
