This half gallon “short” jar has a 3¾ inch opening for accessibility. It is great for reaching deep inside for cleaning and pushing down vegetables. It’s 1 inch wider and 3 inches shorter than our “tall” jar. It comes with an airlock, recipe card, and two 110mm lids. One lid is solid and the other has a hole (and grommet) for the airlock. These lids are the same size that fit our gallon jars.

Make fermenting vegetables easier! This 1/2  gallon glass jar includes an airlock set-up which facilitates gas escaping your fermented vegetables while keeping air out. This allows you to make pickles, sauerkraut, and other fermented vegetables, fruits, condiments, and more while greatly reducing problems when fermenting.

Order will include:

  • 1/2 gallon glass jar
  • 1 three-piece airlock
  • 1 BPA free plastic airlock lid, fitted with a hole and grommet for the airlock.
  • 1 solid BPA free plastic lid to store your vegetables when fermenting is done.
  • Recipe card to make Orangeade Kraut.
  • Instructions on how to use your fermenting jar.

Jar and lid are dishwasher safe and BPA free.

Instructions for using your airlock lids.

  1. Before you begin, wash your lids and airlocks in hot soapy water and dry them.
  2. Prepare your vegetables and place in your canning jars, fill with the appropriate amount of water and culture.
  3. Remove the clear plastic cap from the top of the airlock. Fill the airlock with water about halfway up the plastic tube.
  4. Place the cap back on the airlock once you filled it with water and place the airlock in the grommet on the airlock lid, pushing down till the airlock is securely in the grommet.
  5. Screw the lid on the jar and tighten the lid firmly to prevent air from entering the jar.
  6. When the vegetables are done fermenting, remove the airlock lid & airlock, replace it with the solid lid, and place the jar in the fridge.
