The good news is that now, even a rookie in the kitchen can successfully learn how to ferment, because fermenting vegetables at home just got easier.
And here's why...
Karen Diggs is a nutritionist and therapeutic chef who is passionate about fermentation and teaches people all about it.
When she went in search of a fermentation crock that was small enough to set on the counter, easy to use, and simple to clean, she came up empty-handed.
So instead of giving up, Karen approached her friend, Eric Klein, who's an engineer and product designer. You might expect what happened next.
They created a product appropriately called, "Kraut Source," and posted a campaign on KickStarter to get funding for its full production. (Do you see what they did there?)

Kraut Source / crowd source. (Just in case you were still wondering.) Clever, right?
Fortunately, the KickStarter community really got behind the product. And the result was that Karen and Eric exceeded their fund-raising goal by $149,000.
How It Works
Kraut Source is a stainless steel device that fits over any Mason Jar with a wide-mouth opening, turning it into a miniature fermentation crock. Its small-batch fermentation uses are virtually limitless. The video below (from the KickStarter campaign) explains more...
How To Order
Although the KickStarter campaign has already ended, you can still be one of the first to use the Kraut Source in your very own kitchen.
