This jar holds a little less than 4 quarts, making it an ideal size for an enthusiastic fermenter or a family. Each full jar yields approximately 3.5 quarts of fermented goodness and has a wide mouth, which makes it easy to reach in.
From Sarah Kersten Studio in Oakland, CA, each fermentation jar is crafted with a waterlock seal, an ancient design which allows for an oxygen-free environment— the gold standard of vegetable fermentation. To use, prepare and pack vegetables inside the jar, then fill the channel at the jar’s mouth with water. Once the lid is placed into the water, fermentation begins, creating CO2, which in turn pushes oxygen out of the seal and maintains an oxygen-free ferment.
Each jar comes with a set of stoneware weights for Fermentation.
