Preserve your food the natural way with this Half Gallon USA made Fermenting Jar.  Fermenting food is the oldest form of preserving with the technique being in use for over 4000 years! Yes you can make Pickles, Kimchi and Sauerkraut, and that is just the start. Ferment all your veggies and fruits into delicious foods which are much better for your health!

The lid is BPA free tin and has a food safe lining on the inside metal to prevent corrosion.

The fermenting valve effectively provides an airlock, allowing gases to vent naturally from your jar without your intervention, which can introduce harmful yeasts or excessive oxygen to the fermenting product.

You will receive the lid with airlock, a silicone seal and a half gallon jar. Note that the lid with seal can be a little tight which is part of the airtight sealing process.  

If you want a dunking weight to suit this jar you need the small size one.

Minimum buy 6 jars.

Directions for use

Check that the seal in the lid is intact.  Insert the airlock into the rubber hole on the lid, being careful not to push too hard.

Fill the jar with the food you are fermenting and leave about 2 - 3cm headspace.  Pour on whatever liquid you are using as a fermenting liquid, be it a salt brine, whey or lactic cultures.  Ensure that the liquid covers the food but still leaves head space at the top.  For some food you may wish to weigh down the food with a fermenting weight (sold separately) so that it stays submerged beneath the liquid.

Place the lid with the airlock inserted on top of the jar and screw tight.

Remove the top off the airlock and add water to about half way up the airlock.  Replace the top on the airlock.

The fermenting process starts immediately.

Once the product is fermented, you can store it in the fridge with the air lock in situ, or remove the lid and replace with a storage lid such as the one piece gold lid.
