By now everyone in the world has been faced with having to shelter in to limit there exposure to Covid-19. While adjusting to this new way of life I have found myself doing more canning and food perservation. I have been wanting to try fermenting foods so I was excited to review the Starter Kit from Fermentools. I am pretty good with canning jams and vegetables but fermenting is something entirely new process for me.
The the Starter Kit from Fermentools is a easy at home kit that doesn’t require much skill and know how or a bunch of special equipment. The Starter Kit from Fermentools comes with a stainless steel lid, glass fermentation weight, air lock, 2 rubber stoppers, Himalayan powdered salt and instructions. The process just need your size of wide mouth glass jar of choice depending on what your you are fermenting and patience. The Starter Kit from Fermentools comes with a basic sauerkraut recipe but for this review we did something a little different.
My family isnt a huge fan of sauerkraut so I decided that we would make Pineapple Tepache. We use the beverage recipe from the Fermentools Tepache A Feremented Beverage. My son LOVES Kombucha I knew he would love tepache. I grew up drinking tepache, the Starter Kit from Fermentools make this childhood favorite beverage super easy and tasty to make.
The process took all of 5 days to make I started it with my son on a Sunday so it would be ready on Friday for family movie night. We spent the week learning about why its important to grow our own food and food preservation and whats happens to food during the fermenting process. The next few times we made Pineapple Tepache my son pretty much did it himself with very little help from me.
The cost of the Starter Kit from Fermentools at the time of this review is $21.49 plus applicable tax and shipping. This a great way to start your fermenting journey with your family the possibilities are endless and its easy to do. The Fermentools website is full of great recipes to get you started along with the enclosed instruction book.
