Fermenting crocks

I have been making fermenting crocks for the last 6 months. It started out as a favor for a friend to make one but now it has become a passion of mine. I am now fermenting all kinds of things in these crocks. I am always making pickles, sauerkraut, kimchi, and hot sauce to name a few. To see these fermenting crocks as well as kombucha and vinegar crocks that I have available can be seen by simply clicking on the picture. You will be sent to the crock section of my online shop.

I have sent these crocks all over the world now. Some very well known fermanters have been giving me some great reviews too! Sandot Katz, author of Wild Fermentation and the Art of Fermentation had this to say:

A Hand-Made Fermentation Crock

Okay, okay, so this isn’t technically a last-minute gift, but it’s one you’ll absolutely love. I adore fermentation, wrote a whole video class on fermentation, and featured a chapter on fermentation in my cookbook. While mason jars and the like are perfect for newcomers to fermentation, having the right equipment can make a huge difference in the quality of fermented foods you produce – reducing the likelihood of cross-contamination by stray microbes and molds. For this reason, I cherish my crocks which are specifically designed for fermentation.

My favorite among my three crocks is a handmade fermentation crock produced by a potter out of California who sells his wares on Etsy. His fermentation crocks are made-to-order, come with weights, and the small ones hold 2 quarts and are priced at about $65. I LOVE mine.
