Can It & Ferment It Anniversary!

Posted on July 25, 2018 by Emily Kociolek | 44 comments

Can you believe it's already been a year since the Can It & Ferment Recipe Book came out?  This book has become my go-to resource for preserving our garden, which is why it is the only fermenting book we sell on our website!  It's also the reason why we are collaborating with the author, Stephanie Thurow of Minnesota From Scratch for a wonderful anniversary giveaway!

In 2016, Stephanie filled out the contact us form on our website and asked if we would like to contribute to the canning and fermenting recipe book she was writing.  Since that email, I have met Stephanie in person only twice, but our relationship online has grown into a wonderful friendship! 

Having a fermenting book author as a friend has many great perks, including last week when I needed some help making kimchi for the first time!  Thanks to her advice, our first batch was a huge success and is already half eaten. 

Another advantage of our friendship, is that I get signed copies of all her latest projects!  This month, the publishers of Harris Farmer's Almanac came out with an edited version of Can It & Ferment It as a condensed magazine - Canning & Fermenting.  I haven't been able to find a copy anywhere locally, so Stephanie was kind enough to send me this signed copy. 


 

Would you like your own a signed copy of her book or magazine?  You're in luck, because we've teamed up with Stephanie for a great giveaway!  Last week she gave away our 5L Artisan Leaves Fermenting Crock on her very popular Instagram account.  This week it's our turn to host a giveaway!

We've got two great prizes for you today, perfect to get you started fermenting.  The first prize is a signed copy of the Can It & Ferment It Recipe Book along with a $25 Stone Creek Trading store credit to purchase whatever fermenting supplies you need our store!  The second prize is a signed copy of the new Canning & Fermenting Magazine and a $15 Stone Creek Trading store credit.

We know everyone doesn't have social media, so we wanted to make this giveaway easy to enter.  All you have to do is enter your email address in the Rafflecopter widget below and use it to comment on this blog post, no social media required!  You can also get extra entries by liking our Facebook pages. 

This giveaway ends tomorrow, July 26 at midnight, so be sure to enter right now before you forget!  Winners will be announced and contacted via email on Friday, July 27 and have 48 hours to respond before an alternate winner is drawn.

Good luck and happy fermenting!

Pounded cabbage in my crock,
Well sealed with a water lock,
Salt, carrots and caraway too,
Then I add the saline brew,
It ferments.
Bubbles and presents,
The finest sauerkraut on these streets,
And one of nature’s finest treats.

Dziekujebardzo!

My favorite fermenting recipe is carrot-ginger kraut. When it comes to canning, well, the chutneys (peach-plum, peach-lime, pear or rhubarb) are always on the menu.

My canning has been limited to berry juices (for making jellies later) and Bing cherries, plus making jellies from fresh, canned, or frozen berries. We’re dealing with some unexpected allergies, so food choices are narrowing. :-(

It’s hard to pick favorites, but I probably ferment sauerkraut more than anything else. As for canning, I make tons of applesauce.

I just made a batch of cauliflower and other veggies with turmeric, garlic and ginger in my 2.5L crock. Perfectly fermented in ~2 weeks.
