Hello friends! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I’ve been in Ireland for the last week, having all sorts of adventures (and I’ve amassed quite a collection of European canning gear that I’ll show you in an upcoming post). However, I’m dropping in from my vacation to post this week’s giveaway.
This one comes to us from the folks at EcoJarz. They recently added a nifty fermenting kit to their online shop, and it’s a terrific one for those of us who like to use our canning jars for small batch ferments.
The kit comes with a stainless steel ring (which will not rust or corrode like the conventional ones), a flat lid drilled with a hole and fitted with a silicone grommet, three-piece airlock, and a handy little fermenting guide that covers all the basics.
Just before I left on my trip, I used my EcoJarz fermenting kit to transform some gorgeous black radishes (a gift from one of the farmer vendors at the Antietam Valley Farmers Market) into tasty, tangy pickles. I made a brine using 2 tablespoons finely milled salt and four cups of filtered water.
Once the salt was dissolved, I sliced the radishes, packed them into a jar, and covered them with the brine. A few days later, once the liquid had gone tart, they were done.
