Sauerkraut or pickled cucumbers prepared in this 5 Liter stoneware pot are indispensable sources of vitamins.
Vegetables stored in airtight crock pots such as the ME2105 5 Liter Crock pot have proven to be one of the best possible ways to maintain the vegetables flavor and fresh aroma. Contrary to foods pasteurized in preserve jars, food items stored in stoneware containers lose none of their nutritional value.
By placing a lid onto the water-filled flange of the pot, air is prevented from entering inside the pot. Vegetables in the pot undergo the process of fermentation, releasing carbon dioxide which gradually displaces the air completely. In this way, anaerobic atmosphere is created inside the pot. Preserves maturing in these unique conditions acquire an unforgettable flavor. With the help of a stone weight, included with this pot, the vegetables are kept below the surface of the juice filling the pot.
To create an airtight seal, add water to the flange and top it off about once a week. In addition, to reduce water evaporation from the flange, you may add a few drops of vegetable oil to the water so that it will not need replenishment as frequently.
