Fermented vegetables are delicious, loaded with probiotics, and easy to make at home. Mason jars are the perfect vessel to ferment in: they're easy to find, fit perfectly in kitchen cupboards, are dishwasher safe, and versatile. That's why Masontops created an entire suite of products for fermenting vegetables in Mason jars, including Pickle Pebbles. If you don't already have Mason jars, you can order some here.
Pickle Pebbles ensure vegetables stay submerged under the liquid brine during the fermentation process to prevent mold spoilage. They're perfectly weighted for Mason jar use: only one Pickle Pebble is needed per ferment! These handy weights also feature small finger grip grooves for easy removal. We recommend using this product with fermentation airlocks, like our Pickle Pipes. If you're a beginner and also want recipes, checkout The Complete Fermentation Kit.
I’ve purchased these items before but purchased the pickle pebbles which have been improved to help in picking them up... little handles!! I actually haven’t used them yet but am looking forward to using them in the near future.
This was a repeat purchase for me. I ordered some pickle pebbles and pipes for regular mouth jars a couple of years ago, and really liked them. As my confidence in my ability to successfully ferment with them has increased, I have moved into doing more in larger jars, most of which have wide mouths. so I needed the wide mouth version. I like the new design with the handle that makes it easier to get the pebble in and out of the jar. Overall, it is a great product from a great company.
I've been fermenting for two years, now. Using your fermentation weights ensures that my finished projects can be refrigerated in smaller jars. They last longer and stay mold free because the weights keep food under the brine. I'm very pleased with your product and prompt delivery.
I've been using them for some time now, and with improved results. These Pebbles are easy to clean and fit into the wide-mouthed jars I use. There was a reviewer earlier who had some trouble getting a Pebble out - I did too with a couple of mine, but I was able to turn them from side to side or along the edge in order to get them back out. I considered making this a four-star review because I didn't realize this would be fulfilled through Amazon, a company that I'm consciously trying to avoid. My view of that company is a separate issue, and it may be that it's necessary for Masontops' own business, but no matter how much I dislike Amazon, it doesn't take away from how well these Pebbles work.
Super Item, love it.
