For anyone who wants to explore making fermented foods, we’ve combined a simple, effective fermentation set and an informative guide to help you get started. For use with Mason jars you may already own, the valve-and-weight set simplifies the process of fermenting small batches. The 250-page guide explains the basics of fermentation and provides expert tips and recipes. Save 15% on the combination compared to buying the items individually.

Fermentation Set

This set has a glass weight that helps keep ingredients submerged, while the jar's threaded collar holds the silicone airlock in place, acting as a one-way valve to keep air out but releasing built-up pressure so you don't have to monitor it constantly. Available in regular-mouth or wide-mouth versions.

The guide includes 20 recipes ranging from cheese and sourdough bread to yogurt and beer.
