made with ash glazes in a wood
and salt atmosphere kiln. All
ingredients are non-toxic. The
inner lid is designed to press
your vegetable material under
the brine mixture.
This is the old
world kraut crock, heirloom quality.
I have a neighbor who has a three
gallon crock from her great grandmother
that was passed down and brought
over from Romania. We just made
a new lid for it in our studio,
and the glaze couldn't match
better...except if we had Romanian
The pictured crocks
hold approximately 1-1/2 gallons and are priced
at $135 (plus shipping/handling),
which includes Sandor Katz' book, "Wild
guide to fermenting, pickling
and brewing for fun and health).
The crocks are $115 without the
book, but you won't get the book
for a better price (retails $25),
and anyone looking for homegrown
fermentation knowledge shouldn't
have to live without it.
Katz' website has an abundance
of information on the subject
of fermented foods: www.wildfermentation.com
