  • sauerkraut crock

    I have just bought a sauerkraut crock and I'm really excited about it!

    Fermenting Crock for Sauerkraut, Cucumbers & More, 5 liters, Preserving Jars & Pots | PureNature24.co.uk

    The price seemed good - slightly dearer that amazon.co.uk, but postage was way less, so overall it worked out about 10 less. Can't wait for it to arrive!

    I've had success with sauerkraut using a crock with saucer and polythene bag over the top, but this should take the element of risk away...

    mmmmm, I love kraut. J make it too sometimes using the jar with the airlock lid contraption, but I've always wanted a Harsch crock. Which crock did you get?

        oooh, I wanna do that. Looked at the crocks at Amazon, high, ordered a jar of organic just to make sure I like it as much as I think I do. Fermented foods supposed to be soooo good for us.

          That looks like a good price, considering the one's at Amazon here in the US are mostly over $100. Yours is half that price.

            Perhaps it is because I am nearer to where it was made (Germany) so lower transport costs? Or import taxes, perhaps?
            Whichever, I can't wait for it to arrive! I've got an organic farm near where I live with wonderful looking cabbages!

                I thought saurkraut jars where on supposed to be covered with clothe, not airtight lids when fermenting?

                  It has arrived! I am so pleased - can't wait to fill it up and get fermenting. Sadly, only two recipes are given in English - there are many more in German, but that is all Greek to me! I shall send them to a German speaking friend and see if she has time to translate some of them....

                  I am glad I ordered the smallest one - 5 litres. It is big enough - the 15 litre one would have been enormous!

                      I found this information both helpful and fascinating:
                      Sauerkraut fermentation

                      The takeaway points are that temperature and salt concentration are crucial.

                        That is fascinating. It explains why the sauerkraut that I have made previously tasted slightly different sometimes. I thought the new crock would make it more even - obviously not! So having read your link, I shall probably ferment it in the sitting room (cooler than the kitchen in this weather!) and ferment in the kitchen in the winter.
