Sour Dough Starter

11/4/2018 by Sharon

I tried to make sour dough starter in a glass jar with plastic wrap lid and one in the fermentation jar. The process was going well in each jar until we went on a 3 week vacation. I put both in the refrigerator and when we returned the regular jar had a great growth of blue fuzz, and the fermentation jar looked great. I took it out and fed the starter again and made a loaf of bread. I highly recommend the Fermentation Crock for sour dough starter.More > < Less

I've been wanting to buy this for a long time. Just made some basic green cabbage sauerkraut and fermented ketchup. First try on both came out pretty good! I'm sure I'll perfect the mix a bit the next time around. Can't wait to try out some other different recipes. A real money-saver from buying fermented veges in the grocery. Easy to use and clean.More > < Less

I really didn't know how happy I would be making pickles, but I love the darn things. Very tasty and nutritious, and the crock is so easy to use. I've made sauerkraut, too, and it is yummy. Beats most store-bought pickles hands down. . .More > < Less

About Mortier Pilon

Pickled Goodness

This fermentation pot will help you create nutrient-rich foods that are good for digestion . . . and it looks great doing it.

If you’re not familiar, fermentation introduces helpful bacteria, or probiotics, to balance your digestive system and help it absorb more nutrients. It’s an age-old food preservation technique that—without the right tools—can be as messy as it is beneficial. You put your foods in a type of brine (usually a mixture of salt, water, and vinegar), and a delightful chemical reaction happens.

Mortier Pilon creates the ideal environment for this biological transformation. This vessel has a futuristic look with clean lines, but the design has a purpose. As the organisms inside begin to grow, they create gases. The water seal lets those gases escape, while also keeping air out. An included weight makes sure your veggies stay submerged under the brine and outside the reach of unwanted bacteria.

Get new recipe ideas fresh from the Mortier Pilon cookbook—like pickles and homemade sauerkraut. To keep track of your creations, update the rewritable label. To store your fermented foods in smaller batches, you can use their optional canning jars.

Whether you’re an expert or an amateur, this fermentation crock will get you asking, “Is that fermentable?”
