Support: FARMcurious Fermenting Set with ReCAP Kickstarter

Hey, you like to ferment, right? Sure, we all do. I don't know about you, but sometimes I struggle with certain unwelcome visitors in my ferments, though: Molds, yeast, or detritus. (We are, after all, a dog household.) Crocks with moat lids are great at keeping all that out, but they invariably are really huge, and even I can't eat that much kraut. 

My pal Nicole at FARMcurious has the perfect solution: Easy-to-use fermentation kits that screw right onto standard wide-mouth jars. I know you have one or two of those hanging around. 

I've used these kits, and they work fabulously. But don't take my word for it. Go -- right now! -- to the Kickstarter campaign for these kits, read all about it, and watch Nicole's video clearly explaining the benefits. If you feel compelled to contribute to the campaign, great! One of the perks is a bonus booklet with handy recipes for your fermentation sets, provided by some of your favorite fermentalists, like Erica Strauss of NW Edible Life, Kate Payne of Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking and ... me! 

Awesome, right? Right. So what are you waiting for? Go!
