Masontops Complete Mason Jar Fermentation Kit – Item of the Day — 7 Comments

  1. I am very interested in making my own fermented foods. How long is the process from start to finish with something like cabbage?

    • There are a lot of variables. However, good kraut will generally take 5-14 days tops. Most ferments will finish in 3-18 days as long as temps are about room temperature and you did it right. At the time you like the result, you should move it into the fridge and cap it for long term storage. This will slow down the ferment to a very very slow crawl. But it never stops and of course it doesn’t store indefinitely.

      This is why I like doing jar sized ferments, no secondary repacking, fish, remove fermentation lid, cap and put in fridge and eat as you see fit.

      I highly and I mean HIGHLY recommend this book for those getting started in fermenting.
