    I tried using salt but got too impatient, so I use Body Ecology starter culture. I've also fermented other veg with it. Fermented sweet peppers are wonderful, too!

    RR, I use a fido jar and I keep one large cabbage leaf and press it down on the kraut. (Fido jars are the ones with a rubber seal and a wire clamp lock-down glass lid.)

    There's a scientific study done by Lea Harris, the final results of the different jars she tried is here: Sauerkraut Survivor Final Report | Nourishing Treasures

    She reports that the cabbage leaf w/ jar to hold it down didn't work, but I used the cabbage leaf in the fido jar and it worked great. The leaf itself got a little, ah, icky around the edges, but that didn't affect the kraut at all. I also used starter culture and I think Lea just did the salt brine method. I just can't wait 4-6 weeks for my kraut to be ready... using a starter culture, my kraut is ready in a week, and gets better with time.

    I've also used the air-lock fermenting jars and those work good, too! I have clay half-circles to keep the veg submerged. Great recipes, supplies, and info articles here: Cultures for Health

    Fourth of July post a day late

    In this space, I had written a whole long thing I needed to get off my chest because a 69 year old friend of mine has gone practically vegan. But just writing it helped, and it would mostly be boring to others, so I'll just post the pics for yesterday.


    Because lately, babies dressed as food make me go, Awww



    How accomodating!



    I only bought six.
    I went away for a month.
    I came home to this.




    So much wrong in one little package.

    Peace, love, and scary gnome haiku,
    J

    did you go on another vacation?
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol
