Trust your gut.

This good-looking ceramic crock is master of disguise. It’s also a fermentation pro and can whip up probiotic-rich kimchi and sauerkraut in no time. It’s designed to hold a little over a gallon of pickled goodness and features built-in handles for easy lifting. The water-sealed lid has been used traditionally for years and years as a natural seal that allows just enough air in to perfect the process. Two ceramic stones are also tagging along to keep your veggies weighted while they ferment. And if you’ve still got questions, fret not: A handy list of instructions and recipes is included.
