Making your own delicious sauerkraut or kimchi at home is surprisingly easy. And our special 1.4 litre glass fermentation jar with an air release valve in the lid will make it even easier – and foolproof – with no other equipment required.
Air Release Valve
There’s no messing around with muslin cloths or remembering to ‘burp’ your jar as the airtight lid features a special one-way valve that allows built-up gas from the fermenting process to escape automatically, so there’ll be no explosive situations, while also preventing contamination from outside, which can make your food go mouldy.
Ideal for Sauerkraut
To make a basic sauerkraut that’s a world away from the stuff you find in supermarkets, all you need is cabbage and salt. Simply shred the cabbage and massage the salt into it until the cabbage goes soft and starts to produce a natural brining liquid. About five to ten minutes should do it and it’s really quite therapeutic. Add some caraway seeds for extra flavour, if you like, then put everything in this wide-mouthed fermentation and preserving jar, top up with water until the cabbage is covered, weigh it down with a cling-film-covered ramekin filled with baking beans and put the lid on. That’s it.
After about three days, it will be ready to eat, but the longer you leave it, the more the tangy flavour develops. When you’ve got the flavour just right, put the jar in the fridge to halt the fermenting process. It will keep for ages. Our buyer, Veronica, was still enjoying a batch three months after she originally made it.
