Mortier Pilon

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?”
