10 L (2.6 Gal) K&K Keramik German Made Gartopf Fermenting Crock Pot Kerazo F1


Tubular Style Form 1-Kerazo

A "Harsch-LIke" Product from Germany

Make natural nutrition-packed sauerkraut and pickled vegetables with this stoneware crock pot from Germany! Through the years, sauerkraut has been recognized as one of the healthiest foods, and was even used on sailing ships to protect sailors from scurvy.  In just 4-8 weeks you can have delicious sauerkraut from all typed of vegetables like cabbages, pumpkins, cucumbers, carrots, beans, beets, celery, onions and peppers.

Recently in the news, sauerkraut and pickled vegetables fermented the natural way with lactic acid fermentation are being credited with correcting bodily imbalances of intestinal flora, leading to problems including acid reflux for which doctors often prescribe harsh antibiotics.

Natural lactic acid fermentation is one of the oldest and healthiest means of food preservation. It allows natural, beneficial bacteria to perform a fermentation process in which vegetables develop a pleasantly sour taste and remain rich in vitamins and minerals. Lactic acid fermentation is the only method of preservation that retains all the natural plant ingredients while improving the quality, taste and aroma.
