The water-sealed crock is durable and easy to clean. It's made with all-natural, food-safe material. Unlike traditional fermenting crocks, this stoneware pickling crock has a lid and water seal. It keeps vegetables and sauerkraut free from air and possible contamination. Material: Glazed ceramic; Dimensions: 10 x 10 x 12 inches (LxWxH); Capacity: 1 Gallon; Colour: Black. This fermenting crock pot is the perfect size for small-batch fermenting. The well-designed handles make it easy to use and move around. It is suitable for all kinds of fermenting, sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, fermented vegetables, and much more.
The weights keep the vegetables and sauerkraut submerged in the brine, which means all of your veggie will be perfectly fermented.
Essential for every home fermentation crock, the pounder is made with high-quality Acacia wood. Acacia wood is super durable and does not scratch easily; it is naturally antibacterial, as well as water and fungus-resistant. This makes it the ideal wood to use with preparing food.
The included recipe book will teach you the ropes if you are a fermenting novice and provide plenty of interesting inspiration if you are a fermenting pro!
The first step to using your crock to ferment veggies is to make sure you have all your equipment ready. This is what you need: your HomeBuddy fermentation crock; fermentation weights; a wooden pounder; a knife and a cutting board, a mandoline, or a food processor.
Vegetables, non-iodized salt, water.
1. Slice, chop, or process all your veggies into even pieces and place them into a large bowl. 2. Add around 3tbs of salt to every 5lb of veggies. 3. Add enough water to cover the contents. 4. Stir and pound the mix with a wooden pounder. 5. Put everything in the HomeBuddy crock. 6. Pack the veggies down into the crock using the wooden pounder. 7. Add the weights on top, making sure the veggies are completely submerged. 8. Put the lid on your crock and store it in a warm, dark area between 2 and 6 weeks. 9. Taste your veggies every few days until your perfect flavor is achieved. 10. Once you're happy with the taste, decant the veggies into glass storage jars and keep them in the fridge to stop the fermentation. 11. Enjoy! This is the most basic way to use the crock. There are many fermenting crock recipes available for just about any veggie imaginable. From traditional dill pickles to fermented corn on the cob, options are limitless!
The HomeBuddy crock is super easy to clean. Simply wash with warm water and mild dish soap as you lightly scrub the inside and the weights. Dry well, wipe the inside with a paper towel and a little bit of vinegar. Your crock is then ready to store or begin a fresh batch!
Any veggie! From sauerkraut to kombucha and kimchi, to dill pickles, and so much more. Pickled baby corn spears make a delicious side-dish at barbecues, and pickled hot peppers are an excellent topping to your burger.
HomeBuddy fermentation crocks are ideal for pickling small batches as you experiment with different flavors. Elevate meals and turn your food into a hit at any dinner party!
The HomeBuddy fermentation crock is a high-quality crock, and it's super easy to use. If you're shopping for a fermentation or sauerkraut pot, try looking for stoneware crocks for pickling. A ceramic fermentation or sauerkraut crock will hold a consistent temperature for extended periods.
Always choose a fermenting pot with a lid so you can keep the air out and a wide opening, so it's easy to scoop out of. When selecting a crock it is best to find one with a water seal. Water seals will keep all of the bad bacteria out while allowing gases to escape as needed.
There is no difference! Crocks for making sauerkraut have been popular for decades, and many families still use them. These days, fermentation is becoming more and more popular, and cabbage is no longer the only vegetable used!
Newer fermentation crocks have been modernized to make the fermentation process more accessible and more effective. Some have water seals, added extras like weights, and most of them have lids.
Yes, you can. However, it could end up being a bit mushy. For the best results, use small pickling cucumbers; they have the fewest seeds and softest skin and make sure you wash them thoroughly. English cucumbers also have reasonably soft skin.
Yes, you can use your crock to ferment all kinds of veggies together. Try to make sure you cut them up in the same size if you want them to have the same amount of crunch.
If you add flavorsome ingredients like chili peppers and garlic and other veggies like carrots and cabbage, it will add flavor to the other veggies. As long as you cover all of it with liquid, you can make all kinds of mixes.
Posting with 5 stars because, shocker, they won't post my 1 star review. Third use and the crock leaked all over my counter/floor from the bottom of the crock. Wasted food, and because I was fermenting beets the pink juice stained my kitchen. Sent pictures of the product to Homebuddy and they are refusing to send out a new one; rather, they suggested I dropped the crock (which I hadn't; no visible cracks)
My croc arrived yesterday and was placed in the lobby of my apartment, but it was stolen and I considered, undelivered.
Now I have to wait and find out what Amazon is capable of doing.
I am inspired at such a natural and affordable solution to the creativity and care that such a simple appliance can offer.
All I need is a home buddy crock, and basic ingredients?
Now tell me, why wouldn’t anybody buy in and start living a healthier & more affordable lifestyle.
Oh yeah, I’m a bit of a burger head, and dreaming about toppers and sides.
The first crock arrived with a chip in the inside bottom. We contacted the company and after a short correspondence and photo showing the damage we did receive a replacement. Right now we are fermenting hot sauce in the crock. It is a nice looking piece and does hold quite a large amount of product. It is a great value and the customer service is great
Love the fermenter! Great price! Delivered quickly! Well packed no damage! Made a batch of sauerkraut first thing. It was so easy with the fermentor and it was the best sauerkraut I’ve ever made! Highly recommend this fermenter, you will love it to!
