Fermentation Crock Pot
Stoneware fermentation crocks are perfect for making
sauerkraut, pickles and fermented vegetables. The unique lid
design fits into a specially designed gutter. When water is
poured into the gutter, an air-tight water seal is created,
preventing air from entering, while allowing gases produced
through fermentation to escape. Specially designed stones are
included to ensure the vegetables are always below the brine
level. These pots are certified lead and contaminant-free.
Recommended by all the latest cookbooks that promote
fermentation, using a fermentation pot is the easiest, safest,
and cleanest way to ferment cabbage for sauerkraut, carrots,
or just about any vegetable. Fermentation allows for long term
storage of vegetables, as the most natural preservation
method, while enhancing the taste and improving the health
benefits and bioavailabilty through the fermentation process.
Aviva recommends Caldwell Starter Culture, which makes it
easier to culture raw vegetables, including sauerkraut, at
home, with the added benefits of specific bacteria strains
that enhance the health benefits of all fermented vegetables.
