This is one for all the folks who want to take their fermenting serious and to the next level. The Burnt Sienna, TSM Products Polish Fermenting Crock with Stone Weights will help you do just that. There is nothing wrong with using mason jars to do your fermenting but you can definitely up your game with this homestead addition.
Traditionally fermented foods are a natural source to obtain various nutrients. They can improve your overall health as these foods are a powerhouse of multiple components including probiotics, vitamin B complex, and dietary fiber. This can help to boost the immune system, maintain a healthy gut, strengthen bones, support weight loss, increase energy, help maintain cholesterol levels, be a source of antioxidants, promote food absorption, and support youthful skin.
You’re homesteaders though, I don’t really need to tell you about all the benefits of fermented foods, you just want a better way to make them and this is it.
- This 1.3 gallon crock is ideal for making healthy and delicious probiotic enriched, fermented sauerkraut, kimchi, cucumbers and more.
- The design features a large, deep water channel to create an oxygen-free environment inside the crock. Fermenting gases, or carbon dioxide, are released while oxygen is forced out to create an airtight seal.
- A wide, 5″ diameter opening makes it easy to load and unload your vegetable ferments and the crock’s large handles are convenient for safe lifting and moving.
- Also included with this crock are stone weights to keep your vegetables submerged underneath the brine or fermenting liquid
- This fermenting crock is handcrafted in Poland
There are cheaper fermenting crocks but I believe this one is superior to the others. The glazed finish and the design make it better than many others I have used and seen.
TSM Products also makes a larger 10 Liter crock with the same features for those fermentation crazy people (just kidding, no judgment).
