FarmCurious Kickstarter Kit Giveaway!
Fermentation inspires me for many reasons. Those communities of bacteria and fungi never fail to get me excited with their sugar-transforming processes. I may be a weirdo, but I know that I’m not alone in my weirdness. In addition to the communities of bacteria and fungi that compose cultures and make things ferment, there are the communities of people who share cultures and culture, tips and tricks and an endless flow of information about the practice. Those communities are just as important to fermentation as the microbes are, in my humble opinion. Without fermenting friends it would be so much less fun to gain an understanding of of these old and new traditions.
That’s why I’m so grateful to be a part of the community of fermenters supporting this Kickstarter project from FARMcurious. Nicole, the founder, is set on helping new fermenters feel comfortable with the help of her BPA-free kits. This Kickstarter will give her the funds to put these kits into production. And if you land yourself a kit, you’ll get products to make you comfy during your initial fermentation trials. And as I mentioned last week, the reCAP lids bring other benefits as well. They keep the fermentation odors to a minimum, prevent the build-up of CO2 that can lead to leaks or bursts and have a more sophisticated demeanor than my double jar/napkin habit look.
The kits are pretty, neat and pretty neat! If you give to the Kickstarter, you’ll have access to even cooler prizes including a recipe booklet with recipes from some of my favorite peeps, like Sean of Punk Domestics and Jane of the Fermenter’s Kitchen Facebook group. I contributed a new and improved version of my celery root pickle recipe.
The Kickstarter will continue for another few weeks but to share with the greater community of fermenters, Nicole is offering a kit to the readers of fermenty blogs from all over, including some of my favorites! To enter to win a kit of your own, leave a comment about a fermentation fear you have or used to have but have overcome!
Contest is open to Continental United States residents only. FARMcurious will provide one reader/commenter with a fermentation kit, retail value $25. Kit includes two reCAP mason jar lids with airlocks and fittings, packaging and recipe/use booklet. Contest is over.
CONGRATULATIONS TO WINNER CHRISTINE!
