If you're already buying fermented foods, you know how expensive that can get. Kraut Source encourages the DIY, artisanal spirit by enabling home cooks to create gourmet live-cultured foods that are delicious, nutritious, and economical.

In today's ultra-fast, tech-crazed, and stress-obsessed world, we need to counter balance all that hyper activity and reconnect with nature by nourishing ourselves with down-to-earth, real, hand-crafted edibles–healthy edibles such as sauerkraut, pickles, and other lacto-fermented foods.

Kraut Source is designed for singles and families of all sizes. The unit fits on wide-mouth mason jars so you can make pint, quart, or half-gallon sized batches. Unlike traditional stoneware fermentation crocks, Kraut Source takes up little space so you can have several batches fermenting simultaneously, and they'll be ready in a fraction of the time. The glass jar enables you to observe your progress. Its elegant, streamlined design also means it will look nifty on your countertop.
