Description

Fermenting Crock

So, you’ve decided to make your own homemade sauerkraut. Congratulations! Sauerkraut, kimchi or chutney are delicious and they offer numerous benefits for your health. They are also ridiculously easy to make in the comfort of your kitchen, if you make sure that you have all the right tools. Beside the quality of your shredder the success of your first batch also depends on the type of the container you use for the fermentation of your cabbage or other vegetables. There are different types of containers in the market, but your most reliable option is to use a fermenting crock. This crock is made in Poland by Boleslawiec.  Each crock is handmade, resulting in an unique, natural product.   The These crocks have water-seal lids which guarantee you the perfect fermentation of healthy and delicious vegetables. 

 

Why a Fermenting Crock?

It is very important that the fermentation process takes place in a sealed, air-free container. This eliminates the risk of harmful molds forming on top of the brine and ruining your batch. Plastic buckets, pickle jars and regular ceramic pots are not air-tight, even if they have clamp-lids. However, the fermenting crocks feature water-seal lids which keep the delicious contents in an anaerobic environment. Vegetables preserved this way don’t lose any of their healthy nutrients, and you can rely on the stoneware crocks to protect your vitamin stock throughout the entire winter.

How does the Water-Seal Work?

The lid is designed so that it forms a one-way water seal. Once your fermenting crock is packed with finely shredded vegetables (use a quality cabbage shredder for the best results), you place the closing lid into the groove around the opening of the pot and fill the groove with water (make sure that the groove is always filled with water). The seal keeps the air, dust and insects out of the fermenting crock, while allowing the fermentation gasses to bubble out through the water in the groove. There will be no unpleasant smell of the ferment escaping the lid, and the air-lock also protects the full flavor of the pickled vegetables and all of their healthy ingredients such as vitamins and beneficial bacteria.

Stone Weights, Material and Sizes

Your vegetables should be completely submerged in brine during the fermentation period. That is why each fermenting crock is delivered with two semi-circular weighting stones, designed to fit snuggly into the pot and keep the shredded cabbage or veggies submerged about an inch below the brine surface with their weight.


Stoneware walls

Proper fermentation temperature is very important. The thick stoneware walls of these crock pots are designed to keep the temperature constant and ensure that your batch of sauerkraut or kimchi maintains that rich depth of flavor. The thick walls also make this stoneware very durable. The stoneware is glazed with food safe glaze, fired at 1260° C, free of lead and cadmium. The shiny glaze of the sunburst brown stoneware standing next to your traditional wooden cabbage shredder will add that impressive vintage touch to your kitchen. Your guests will be impressed even more when they try the delicacies you prepared in your fermentation crock!
