This oh-so-easy to use fermentation kit comes with one silicone fermenting lid, one airlock, and one glass weight for wide mouth Mason jars – everything you need to get fermenting! Just add any wide mouth jar plus the metal band it came with.
The lids are available in mint green, charcoal grey, light coral, and bright blue.
Better fermentation instructions are on our (long) list of plans, but for now they are widely available in books and on blogs, websites, and the Wild Fermentation Facebook group.
Here’s the basics: Keep everything clean. Either salt your vegetables and pound them to draw out liquid, or pack them into the jar and pour a saltwater brine over them. Place the glass weight on top to keep as much vegetable matter as possible under the brine. Try to skim out any floaters. Put the silicone lid on, logo side up, and secure with a metal band. Fill the airlock with water and install it into the lid. Wait a while, taste, repeat until desired level of flavor is achieved. It’s like magic!
Bonus: When you’re not using your lids for fermentation, they double as straw lids!
