  4. Glass Fermenting Weights - Set of 4 Glass Fermenting Weights - Set of 4
    $29.50

    Glass Fermenting Weights - Set of 4

    This set of 4 glass fermentation weights are made just for us. We've tried many different weights to keep our vegetable ferments under the brine but these glass weights are everything that we like all rolled into one product. Place them over your follower (we use a clean piece of cabbage or grape leaf for our follower) and fit a fermenting lid.

    Note: Do NOT use boiling water to sanitze these as they may crack. Sodium Percarbonate, or Star San is the best option for sanitzing.

    $10.90

    Glass Jar for Fermenting, Yoghurt, Preserving or Food Storage - 1 Quart (950mls)

    Good glass jars are hard to find. And a good lid is even rarer. So we had to stock these wide-mouth preserving jars that hold just under a litre or 1 quart in old money.

    They come with a stainless steel lid that has a removable silicone seal if you do want to use them for air-tight food storage or preserving.

    They work with our Fermentation Lids and Weights, and also with the culturing flasks that we stock.

    They are printed with handy measures for cups, oz, and MLS.

    One of these would make a perfect gift, filled with something yummy for the plastic-free pantry.
