Apparently my Christmas present is going to be a special Polish stoneware pot, Sauerkraut, for the preparation of.
Which may not sound that exciting if you’re not me, or have similar culinary interests.
@grumpysmiffy One of those fancy ones with the lip you can pour water in, to make it properly airttight?
@pelagikat Yes! Airlock! Herself was reading out the descriptions, another one was airtight, but youd have to release gas manually, but a water airlock sounds perfect.
@continuum One we're getting is a traditional one from Poland - lid sits in a pool of water, just like a homebrew airlock, always positive pressure inside. I have to say, I'm getting rather excited! Always afraid it's going to fail, but have had such success with other physics/chemistry cooking from my Swedish cookbook (Vår Kokbok) I think I'm ready to rock Sauerkraut.
Looking at recipes, interesting that Vår Kokbok actually uses a starter culture, in the form of yoghurt, or sour milk.
