With the current push to stay home, you may be looking for new and exciting ways to occupy time. What’s a better use of time than channeling your inner Brad Leone of Bon Appetit and fermenting literally everything you own? Not much — and this fermentation kit makes it super simple.
This Mortier Pilon fermentation crock is an easy way to start pickling and fermenting at home. The glass pot is a “sleek, modern twist on an age-old tradition that helps promote a healthy digestive system.” While you can obviously make pickled veggies and sauerkraut in the pot, some have even used the system to help make sourdough starter.

The pot has a special water seal lid that lets gas escape but keeps air out for perfect fermenting conditions. The lid is also created for easy labeling and re-labeling, allowing you to keep track of what’s inside with an included wax pencil.
“I was a little skeptical about this product, but I had tried to make fermented pickles in a large mason jar last year, and they turned out moldy,” one reviewer writes. “This crock is perfect in that the water seal prevents air from entering, but also makes it easy to check on the veggies during the fermenting time. I have already made two batches of pickles, and my friends with whom I shared them loved the crisp, briny way they tasted.”

The crock comes in two-liter and five-liter sizes, which are $39 and $59, respectively. But, if we’re honest, making homemade pickles is truly priceless.
