Choose your kit (each sold separately):
    • Wide Mouth Jar Kit-Fits 1⁄2 pt, 1 pt, 1 qt or 2 qt wide mouth canning jars (not included). Takes less space in your refrigerator and is quicker to use. Fermenting takes about 4 days.
    • Extra Large Jar Kit-Fits 1 gallon or 2-1⁄2 gallon extra-wide mouth jars (not included). Great for making larger batches. Fermenting takes about 4-10 days.

        How it works: Air-lock lid keeps air out of jar while overflow cup catches excess brine. Water and sea salt transform contents into delicious brine pickles, which are naturally full of vitamins, minerals and probiotic cultures. After 4-10 days of fermenting, check to see if contents are sour enough to your taste. If not, add a day and re-check.

        "I've been using this product for over a year. You can make it cheaper with parts from a wine making store and a few from the hardware store but it's just so easy to buy it complete and ready to go. If you want to try some small batch lactofermenting then this is a pretty good way to do it - the airlock increases success rates considerably by keeping all of the bad stuff out. As for being complicated - you put some salt in some water and then put your vegetable in the brine and let is sit. How much salt and how long to sit depends on variables like what you're pickling and the temperature where you let it sit. Mostly I use 5gr (by weight!) of sea salt per cup of filtered water to reach a 2% brine that will pickle most vegetables just fine. I have pickled cukes, onions, garlic, and kraut with no failures whatsoever. I pickled corn relish and it worked - I just didn't care for it. My pickled peppers are the Belle of the Ball. Easy steps: salt, water, veggies, leave it alone."
