The new Perfect Pickler, which makes homemade Dill pickles using an ordinary canning jar in just a few days, is now available online. With the Perfect Pickler, consumers can fill an ordinary canning jar with a recipe for pickles in about the same time as preparing a salad, then transform it into a probiotic rich pickle, ready to serve in just a few days. The Perfect Pickler is helping Americans rethink the consuming of fresh fermented food by learning how to make pickles: this once and future food.
For busy individuals and families eating healthy can often be a challenge. Many people have no choice but to sacrifice mineral and nutrient rich food because of financial and time limitations. What most people do not realize is that there are healthy and nutritious options that are easily accessible, at a cost-effective price. The best source of core nutrition comes from fresh pickled vegetables. These are not necessarily “pickles,” nor do they have a “pickle flavor.” Using just salt and water, individuals and families can pickle a wide variety of vegetables. During the fermentation process, beneficial bacteria transform vegetables into a distinctly different class of food. Even though the vegetables aren’t cooked during the pickling process, they become tender and more digestible.
The pickled vegetables are also incredibly nutrient rich as the fermentation process creates more vitamins and makes minerals more digestible. The process also creates multiple vitamin boosts, high enzyme concentrations and healthy bacteria to maintain the immune system. For any individual with a busy lifestyle, this is one of the simplest ways to make healthy foods. Just a couple of tasty tablespoons contain billions of beneficial bacteria!
Now making your own pickles is being revolutionized. Instead of using traditional pickling equipment such as thick-walled pickling crocks, a simple DIY kit fits onto common canning jars. Out with the old and in with a new twist—pickling by the jar. Known as jar top fermentor kits, it is reigniting excitement in the kitchen. More importantly, you can make small batches of numerous recipes any time of year.
Perfect Pickler is the original jar top kit. It was developed by a curious cooking instructor, Bill Hettig. He wanted to pickle vegetables in sealed, airless glass jars with simplicity in mind. It worked! For over twenty years Bill has created signature recipes for this small batch pickler. Each kit comes with dozens of recipes, including the basics of Kimchi, Sauerkraut, Pickled Beets, Dill Pickles, as well as originals using common veggies with spices from around the globe. There are precise booklet instructions and videos to guide your experience.
The Perfect Pickler kit quickly attaches to any size wide mouth canning jar. Now anyone can pickle a quart of just one recipe. In a few days, when fermenting is done, you remove the kit and start a new recipe with another spare jar. Make just enough to enjoy and change out the veggies and spices with a new recipe. This reinvents the age-old method of large crock pickling using heavy weights, then repacking jars and jars of the same recipe. Make a vast variety of small batch pickles any time of year. Fresh cultured pickles are stored in the refrigerator and are good for up to six months.
Here’s what Andrew Weil, one of America’s foremost physicians has to say, “If you enjoy pickled foods, I urge you to make your own using organically grown vegetables. It's not difficult. Recently, I've been using a device called the 'Perfect Pickler,' available online, which makes the process easy and fast; you get really good pickles and kimchi in just a few days." Read more.
The Perfect Pickler jar top kit comes equipped with a unique fermentation airlock. Pickling is improved in an airless environment and the air lock allows gasses to escape through the special lid to seal out airborne microbes. Also unique is the floating brine cup. It is what sets it apart from any other fermentor by eliminating the need for bulky weights found in crocks and other types of jar top fermenters. The cup works in tandem with the airlock to sequester air inside the jar. Eliminating the weight makes the Perfect Pickler easier to handle and transport. Also unique to the kit, once the jar is loaded and locked the unit naturally pressurizes, preventing any chance for microbes to enter the jar during fermentation.
Jar top fermenting is reshaping the way to make and enjoy probiotic vegetables. Sit the kit on the countertop and watch the fun through the jar! In a few days you will have probiotic rich pickles for just pennies. It becomes a new working partner in the kitchen. Pickling is a fun and immersive activity. It is easy to share the experience with family and friends. Pickle parties are the coming thing.
As a newbie artisan, the Perfect Pickler company offers continuous education, online instruction, and new recipes monthly: Moroccan Carrots with Orange and Cinnamon, or Snow White Pickled Radish, and other treats await you. If you can prepare a salad, you can prepare fresh cultured pickles—it’s that easy. When fully fermented, pickles already have the sour, the salty, and the spice flavors. Toss a little pickle onto some lettuce with just a drizzle of oil and there is a cultured salad ready to serve.
Now is the best time to start fermenting in preparation for the upcoming Holiday season! For more information on pickling vegetables and the Perfect Pickler, log on to: http://www.perfectpickler.com.
