Ever dreamed of naturally fermenting your own pickles or sauerkraut or kimchi at home? If so, then this stoneware fermentation crock made in Poland is just what you need! This large fermenting pot features a water seal that allows gases to escape while preventing any mold from forming. That means less work for you and a fresher, more reliable result.
When you purchase a fermentation crock from us, the crock weight is always included. You do not need to purchase additional weights with your order. This crock now comes with our new exclusive non-porous Luna Glass Crock Weights. The correct size of weight is essential in keeping the contents fully submerged in order to properly ferment. We also include a recipe for both pickles and sauerkraut with each crock we ship!
Our crocks are made in Poland by Boleslawiec. Each crock is handmade, resulting in an unique, natural product. Due to their handmade nature, some minor inconsistencies between crocks may occur. However, we hand inspect each crock before shipping to ensure that they meet our high standards. This crock features a dark brown colored glaze.
In 2016, Boleslawiec responded to our customer's feedback and made some changes to the design of this crock. The primary change is to use a smoother clay that results in a more even finish. This clay is lighter in color and weight, meaning the crocks don't weigh as much and are easier to move around. They have also improved the glazing process to result in a more uniform surface. In addition, the rim of the crock is now completely glazed! Finally, the shape of the lid has changed to be a higher dome shape.
The 5L fermenting crock is great for those who are just getting started and want to experiment a little without spending too much. The smaller size is also ideal for those with small kitchens as it doesn't take up as much space.
This 5L Fermenting Crock can also be purchased in our 5L Beginner's Fermenting Kit.
All you need to add is water, salt and your vegetables of choice, and you are only weeks away from a pro-biotic rich, lacto-fermented superfood!
