This Giveaway Contest had ended. The winner is Sarah H.!

Today’s an exciting day! My first ever giveaway!

Is anyone interested in winning a Complete Mason Jar Fermentation Kit from MasonTops? The kit includes…

1 Pickle Packer +

4 Pickle Pebbles +

4 Pickle Pipes!

I own a set of these – purchased by myself – and love how simple they are to use and how well they work. Read on for the details.

And, good news for Canadian readers that so often are not included in giveaways. I asked MasonTops if the contest could also be open to Canadian residents and they said “YES.”

Slight bulge in the Pickle Pipe indicates an active ferment. | makesauerkraut.comFall is in the air and cabbages – and many other vegetables for fermentation – are beginning to appear at local farmers’ markets – at least in North America. Time to dust off the crock, gather jars and invite the microbial world into your kitchen where they will effortlessly transform humble vegetables into delicious, healthy and tangy ferments. And having just the right tools will make that even easier for you.

I recently reviewed Pickle Pebbles and Pickle Pipes, testing how they worked with fermented carrots, cranberry-orange relish and sauerkraut. Read all the nitty-gritty details here:

  • I want to teach my 5th graders how to ferment food. We will begin with cabbage.

    • What a great skill to teach them. Most children enjoy the Sweet Garlic recipe.

      • Then Sweet Garlic it is!! Thanks!

        • Let me know how it goes. It would be great if they could each take home a little jar when finished, even the 4 oz (125 ml).

          • That is a great idea!! Thanks! I’m hoping to do this Friday. We made some countertop pickles that we eat tomorrow.

          • Great idea on the counter top pickles. I’m sure they’ll love them.

  • Dawn Renee’

    Carrots! Always wanted to try fermenting them and have garden fresh to use 🙂

    I want to make my own Sauerkraut!
    {in the contest I am Margot C__ on the Rafflecopter}

  • Cg Witherell

    I’ve gathered, read and re-read all of Holly’s info on fermenting veges. I would like to try sauerkraut first!

  • Laurel2053 .

    I would love to use these for fermenting green tomatos. Yum!

  • Yukiko

    First thing I would make would be pickles!

  • Bethann Perendy

    I would love to try the Cardomom Beet recipe!

    • A favorite of mine. Rosemary Beet is another winner.

      • Rae Russell

        I love rosemary and have some in the garden. Yay!!

        • I like 1 tablespoon roughly chopped for a quart-jar batch.

  • Bethann Perendy

    I would like to make one of the varieties of sauerkraut – Cardomom Beet is at the top of the list!

  • Rae Russell

    I would make my favorite right now: horseradish, scallop and leek sauerkraut. mmmmm

    • I like the horseradish and leek combo. What’s the “scallop?”

      • Rae Russell

        Autocorrect, LOL Shallot. Horseradish, shallot and leek. i just made a new batch, along with a shallot and beet sauerkraut, All from my garden. (except the horseradish). I feel so self sufficient right now ; )

        • Rae Russell

          Also, my hands reek of shallots and leeks. The stainless steel spoon doesn’t work as well on those. But I kind of like it.:P

          • Bethann Perendy

            Rae, I’d love your recipe with horseradish as we’ll be harvesting some soon. It would be fun to make something different with it!

          • And Rae, let us know if there is much bite left in the horseradish. My understanding is that during fermentation the enzymes break down the volatile oils in horseradish.

          • Rae Russell

            It was definitely muted, I made this second batch stronger, we’ll see if it makes a difference.

          • Rae Russell

            Bethann, my recipe is not precise, but for an 800g batch i use I large leek, 2-3 med shallots, and about a 4 inch piece of horseradish that is about 1.5 inches in diameter. When I made this the first time, it was really fabulous, but the horseradish was not really strong. You just got a hint of it.

          • Bethann Perendy

            Thanks Rae, we will give it a try next time I get horseradish dug up!

        • Autocorrect. Understand completely. I keep meaning to turn mine off. Shallots are a nice variations on onions. Must try it. Yay! for self-sufficiency. Thanks for the pics – they’re beautiful.

  • sottovoce

    I love sauerkraut, so that would be on the top of my list. Onions are great fermented as are carrots, bell peppers and, of course, cucumbers. Yummy all. 🙂 Thank you.

  • Diane Wortman

    I would start with pickles. Cardomom Beets sound interesting too.
