Traditional pickling is an amazing way to turn all kinds of foods (not just cucumbers!) into sour, toothsome, nutritious snacks and toppings. It relies on fermentation to both preserve and transform practically any kind of produce, and is not to be confused with industrial pickling, which lacks its authentic taste, unique texture and irreplaceable nutritional value. This kit has everything you need to start making your own pickles at home: a durable, cleverly designed fermentation crock that's a third of the price (and weight!) of most crocks on the market, a rewritable label to identify each batch, and a booklet of user-friendly, thoroughly tested recipes to get you started.2L.
