Easy Weight – Fermentation Weights – Item of the Day — 4 Comments

  1. Those are brilliant. Unfortunately I bought the discs.

    Thanks David for the VLT suggestion. The kitchen tongs DON’T work so well. Although I do enjoy watching my wife try to get them out when she “needs” a pickle.

  2. What’s wrong with the plastic lid off of oatmeal ? I cut half way through to the center and overlap the edges to create a cone. I place it over my packed okra or cukes then I add the brine. I refrigerate them after a few days. I use 1/2 gal glass pickle jars my daughter buys.

    • Whatever floats (or in this case sinks) your boat. Personally I am not into using plastics with my ferments but I’d not fault you for it.
