    • Correct process: Control the fermentation process at home to ensure your ferments have aged properly to ensure you feel your best on fermented foods.
    • Food Grade: Rest at ease knowing that the components are food grade and non-toxic.
    • Easy: Customize your ferments, add the flavour you want, and have various fresh ferments in as a soon as a week. Follow the 5-step process: choose, chop, salt, place, and pack. Learn more with the Getting Started booklet included with jar orders.
