Fermentation Crock – EUR 39



Fermentation is all the rage these days, but what exactly is it? It’s a way of preserving fresh vegetables whilst increasing their nutritional content at the same time. The action of the bacteria created during fermentation helps the body absorb the minerals in the food faster. The bacteria also produce vitamins and enzymes that are beneficial for digestion. You don’t need much equipment-wise to ferment your own vegetables, but having the correct crock pot can make all the difference when you’re getting started. This crock pot provides a special anaerobic (without air) fermenting environment. It allows the lactic-acid bacteria to work best and prevents yeasts and moulds which can ruin your ferment and make your food taste gross. This 2 litre kit has everything you need to start making your own pickles at home: a durable, cleverly designed fermentation crock, a re-writable label to identify each batch, and a booklet of user-friendly, thoroughly tested recipes to get you started.
