Update: Contest is now closed. Congratulations to contest winner Sarah Z, and thank you to FarmCurious for sponsoring this giveaway. Thank you to all who entered!
You know what we haven’t done in a while? A kick-ass giveaway.
There was really only one drawback to my DIY lacto-fermentation converter lid. At the time I invented it, the reCAP lids were only available in regular width. Many fermentation junkies like myself observed that the largest commonly available regular-mouth mason jar is the quart size. What if you want to ferment more? What if you want to ferment things that are bigger than a regular-mouth opening? What then, hmmm?
Well, the reCAP people solved this problem by (finally!) releasing a wide-mouth reCAP lid. And as soon as they did, Nicole from FarmCurious, the urban homesteader’s supply store, paired the wide mouth reCAP with the correct size bung (go ahead, snicker…I understand) and an airlock to create an all-in-one reCAP Fermentation Converter Kit you can use with any wide-mouth mason jar.
Note the wide mouth jar:
As far as I know, FarmCurious is the only place selling reCAP fermenting sets ready to go like this, so if you love this idea but don’t already have reCAP lids you can hack, or don’t want to track down the components on your own, FarmCurious is your source. Nicole sells this three-piece kit (reCAP wide mouth lid, bung and airlock) for $10 at the FarmCurious store, but is giving away three (three!) complete reCAP Fermenting Kits to one lucky NW Edible reader.
As every canning dork knows, you can get wide mouth, half-gallon Mason jars. (Around $12 for a pack of 6 online – avoid shipping if you are near an Ace Hardware.) Pair one of these big ol’ Mason jars with a FarmCurious Wide Mouth reCAP Fermentation Kit and you’ll be up to your elbows in big-batch sauerkraut in no time.
You can enter to win three reCAP Fermentation Kits (total retail value: $30) from FarmCurious by getting your social on.
