I got this contraption from a Lehman's catalog. It is a jar top fermentation kit. If you haven't heard, fermented food is the new/old health craze. So healthy in fact, it will cure all that ails you. Probiotics, enzymatic, vitamins and minerals, things that can't be found in pills, will aid your digestive systems. This used to be done in crocks over a long process, but can be done in a few days with this implement. All you use is water and Celtic Sea Salt.
You can be creative with your fruits and vegetables and make pickles, kraut, kimchi, antipastos. I used the last of my jalapeno peppers for this batch. After 4 days, I poured out some of the brine and replaced it with cider vinegar. I will store them in the fridge, then probably stuff them with cheese or something for the holidays.
I also found this new apple cider vinegar that is unfiltered "with the mother" in it. I'll have to see how it tastes.
