6 Quart Vegetable Fermentation Jar

sarah kersten studio

For a true fermented foods lover, this larger jar is excellent for making sauerkraut and kimchi, and can also be used to make lacto-fermented pickled vegetables ( such as beets, cucumbers, or carrots). 
My Fermentation Jars are all crafted with a waterlock seal, an ancient design which allows for an oxygen-free environment— the gold standard of fermentation. To use, prepare and pack vegetables inside the jar, then fill the channel at the jar’s mouth with water. Once the lid is placed into the water, fermentation begins, creating CO2, which in turn pushes oxygen out of the seal and maintains an oxygen-free ferment.
 
Made with a nontoxic, food safe, corrosion resistant liner glaze. Jars measure 11 inches tall, 8 inches wide. Each jar comes with a letterpressed booklet (includes instructions and my favorite recipes), and a set of porcelain weights to use during fermentation.

Happy Holidays! 2019 brought many changes to this ceramics studio. We moved to a new location in October to expand to meet demand. The new facility is not operational yet. Our kilns are holding us up in the permitting process. We will be able to fire the kilns and make work again in the spring of 2020! In the meantime, you are welcome to pre-order for delivery when we are up and running. Customers who have placed orders will receive periodic updates about our progress in building the new studio, and estimated order delivery times. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out: email sarah@sarahkersten.com. Thank you.
