Mason Jar Lifestyle Giveaway

Disclosures: Mason Jar Lifestyle is a paid advertiser on this site and their sample products were sent to me at no cost to myself. My opinions on the products are not influenced by this arrangement.

I’m excited to share some treasures I’ve been playing with since Mason Jar Lifestyle ran their ad on this site in December. This great website offers an array of fermentation tools you can easily pair with standard wide mouth mason jars.

Mason Jar Lifestyle has generously offered up two sets of fermentation toolkits for two lucky HGGH readers. Each set includes:

These sets are made from great non-leaching materials and are a wonderful resource to any fermenter’s toolkit. I love that the lids can also be used as a mason jar tumbler lid with a straw hole; multi-functional things are a win-win in my kitchen.

The glass weights have become a staple in my fermenting groove since they work to keep shreds and other veggie matter from floating to the top of the salt brine. I always have a few sets on the job of fermenting the season’s krauts, pickles and slaws. I’m not sure why these appear to be different sizes in the image above; they’re all the same size and fit nicely in a widemouth mason jar or can be used all together in a larger sized jar or crock.

I’m excited to be able to share these goodies with you courtesy of Mason Jar Lifestyle. Please enter by March 8 at 11:59pm Central Time using the widget below. I’ll cover shipping these items anywhere in the US.

Those weights look great!

Looks great, fingers crossed - I can already taste the kimchi!

Laotian pickled greens. My neighbor is from Laos, and introduced me to a world of ferments far beyond sauerkraut. Last fall, I made it with mustard greens, but I want to try some other veggies now! Small batches in mason jars are good, because with some things, a little dab'll do ya!

I've always wanted to make sauerkraut!!!

Kimchi is top of my list of ferments to try soon, as well as some flavored batches of kraut like curry or lemon.

March 2, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterSara Cougill

Those are fantastic! Haven't seen the glass weights before, these would be perfect for small batch sauerkraut.

Love to try beets!

March 3, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterLaura

I have always wanted to try my hand at fermenting beets, after seeing a demo on beet kvass. Also, I 'd like to see how low salt fermenting with celery juice , instead, could work, to ferment vegetables.
