The ultimate home fermentation aid is the Harsch Ceramic Crock! Make fabulous sauerkraut for pennies a pint! The exclusive Harsch water seal allows natural fermentation gases to escape, while not permitting outside air to re-enter the crock. This allows for clean and efficient fermentation and eliminates the yeast buildup in both short and long fermentations which can occur in the mason jar method.
Longer fermentations produce incredible, rich flavors and more complete fermentation.
Please note: Crocks are heavy to ship and therefore an additional shipping surcharge of $29.00 is assessed to the 5 and 7.5 liter sizes and $39.00 to the 15 liter size.
Raw sauerkraut can cost over $7.50 a pint in health food stores! Make your own for less than $20 for two gallons! You save 84%! If you served your family just 8 oz. per day of raw sauerkraut, you would spend around $1370 a year buying it from the store, or just $370 to make it yourself - and that includes the price of the crock! That's a savings of $1000! This is truly an investment that pays for itself!
The Harsch Crock's 2-gallon capacity (7.5L size) allows you to make enough sauerkraut for months at a time, saving you time! Now kraut-making can be a fun seasonal ritual rather than a weekly routine!
Tip: To shred cabbage quickly and easily, use the Family Grain Mill Veggie Slicer.
Making Sauerkraut and Pickled Vegetables is a great little book written specifically for this crock, with pictures, instructions, recipes, and fascinating history.
