Giveaway: Win Three ReCAP Fermenting Sets

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Farm to Fermentation Festival at Tara Firma Farm in lovely Petaluma, CA. After perusing the booths of kraut, kimchi, kvass and other probiotic comestibles, I met up with Austin of Fermenters Club for a quick chat. And then, blushing like a fanboy, I MET SANDOR KATZ. *faints* *picks self up off floor*

Seeing all that fermentation in action got me excited about the topic. I know many of you out there are avid fermenters, and with the recent release of Katz's newest book, The Art of Fermentation, I think interest in fermented foods is at a new high. 

Personally, I prefer to do these things in small batches. I just don't have the space to produce enormous amounts of sauerkraut, and couldn't consume it all even if I did. That's why I'm excited for this nifty little product combo that allows you to do small-batch fermentation in mason jars. It combines the reCAP Mason Jar Pour Cap, a clever invention in itself, with a stopper and airlock. Then you just pack your kraut, kimchi or what have you into a sterilized jar, screw on the cap, and let the magic happen. Erica Strauss of NW Edible wrote a post on how to do it, and how it will save you beaucoup bucks.

FARMcurious has plenty of other tools and doodads for the DIY enthusiast, like this charming, hand-thrown fermenting crock.

Here's the best part: Nicole wants you -- YOU -- to have three reCAP fermentation sets of your very own. Here's what you need to do: 

  • Create a Pinterest board; call it what you like. 
  • Pin at least three things from the FARMcurious product line that you love/covet/lust for, like I did here. Tag them with #PDcurious if you please.
  • Post a link to your board as a comment on this blog post. (Pro tip: For greatest ease of leaving comments, be a logged in member of the site by clicking "Join/Log In" in the upper right so you don't have to wrestle with the CAPTCHA code.)
  • Do all this by midnight PT on Friday, September 21.
