By popular demand, Pickle Pebbles PLUS+ offer the same quality as the best-selling Pickle Pebbles, but in a size designed for use with wide mouth canning jars. Pickle Pebbles PLUS+ will fit perfectly in any wide mouth jar and are twice as heavy as regular Pickle Pebbles.
Pickle Pebbles have been specifically designed for use with fermentation and take the guess work out of your lacto ferments by ensuring your veggies stay below the surface of the brine thereby eliminating exposure to oxygen (which is the main cause of failure when using lacto fermenting methods).
Pickle Pebbles can be used in all types of fermenting vessels including wide mouth mason jars, the Fido style jar, as well as traditional ceramic crocks. Dimensions: 2 3/4 " diameter with 3/4 " thickness.
Pickle Pebbles are made of non-iridized soda glass which is completely inert and guarantees that no other substances leach into your ferment.
Pickle Pebbles used together with the masontops Pickle Packer, ensure consistent high-quality results from your home ferments.
What other customers are saying:
"These worked great! Held everything down and nothing got moldy! Only problem.... I only wish I had 60 more!"
"The glass pebbles are perfect for weighing down vegetables and keeping them submerged in the brine."
"I do a lot of lacto-fermenting. The glass pebbles are perfect for weighing down vegetables and keeping them submerged in the brine. They work best in ball jars with the standard sized mouth. They are made of safe materials and packaged nicely. I will order them again."
"Perfect! just as advertised, held everything below the brine with no floaties. would recommend."
"Excellent product, better than porous fermenting weights due to the fact they are non porous. (gives peace of mind) cut your veggies so they will stay on top. good customer follow up. fast mail delivery. support these small business."
I use these for a newly added fermentation in my repertoire, for fermenting beets. I was already familiar with fermenting kimchi and pickles in one of those 10 liter German fermentation pot, which comes with two half stones. However, since I only make four Mason Jars of 20 oz. wide mouth size fermented beets, I needed a weighing down solution. These pickle pebbles are actually working with even better precision than the stones, in spite of the fact that I cut the beets into "French fried potato" shape but quite a bit smaller pieces. No difficulty taking them out at the end, even though they are tight enough not to let any piece to rise above the liquid level, which would then obviously oxidize. You should note that it is better to use these with the cylinder shape 20 oz. jar, rather than a "bulb shape" larger volume jar.
