I have an announcement to make: I have received so many requests from all of you for recipes and techniques that I decided now was the time to buckle down and focus on a collection of them in an ebook for you. More details to come soon on this!
This means, however, that I won’t be able to spend too much time posting on this blog so I can focus on this amazing ebook. I have a lot of fun guest posts planned from some great bloggers and….I am going to do a weekly giveaway to keep you all entertained!

So here we go…this week’s reader’s choice giveaway is my favorite Fermentation Jars – a set of 3 sizes! I use these jars to make all of my fermented foods (what are fermented foods?) including sauerkraut, kefir, pickles and the BEST fermented mayo and ketchup!
FYI: This is not a sponsored giveaway — I am paying for the prize myself, and will have it mailed to the lucky winner.

I’m determined to start eating a lot of fermented food, but it’s intimidating to start! I loved your post on using these jars. After a host of issues, my son, daughter and I are trying to regain a balanced gut. I would love to stop buying probiotics, but I have to figure this out first! First on my list would be sauerkraut, then ketchup (my little guy would love this!), pickles, dilly carrots, garlic, then on to more adventurous foods!

Dawn Lundberg says
This is a cool give-a-way. We became organic two years ago. About 4 months ago, we started making sauerkraut because I had so much left-over cabbage. About 3 months ago, the home-made yogurt endeavors began. The goal is 1-2 or more cups of whole organic yogurt daily for the rest of my life. What is lacking right now is the Fido Fermentation Jars. We would use the fermenting jars right away and often. They would provide the new energy to move forward. Striving to do it better, easier, and with more joy is what we are after! In peace and love, thank you.–Dawn
I have been wanting to start fermenting for awhile now. First on the list is garlic, kefir and ketchup!
