Fermentation crock -- Every jar is hand crafted, and will reflect subtle variation in tone and pattern. It comes with a set of crescent-shaped weights to keep fermenting vegetables submerged in brine, and a booklet—written and illustrated by Sarah—with instructions for use and recipes. Each jar holds 1.5 gallons and measures nearly a foot tall. Made in California.
FOR THE EARLY BIRD: Bodum Columbia French Press. This thick, insulated pot was as simple to use as a traditional glass press, but it kept coffee hotter much longer. It’s also sturdier, with a round, comfortable handle. It took top honors in our tastings.
