Fermented foods are all the rage, for their unique taste to their gut health benefits (thanks to them being packed with probiotics). So, if you love pickled foods and drinks, a fermentation kit belongs in your kitchen and goes way beyond a simple canning kit (and requires a lot less time and guesswork). You can make pickles, kimchi, sauerkraut, kombucha, and other concoctions that will keep for months in your refrigerator. A good kit has BPA-free wide-mouthed glass jars, a glass weight to keep contents fully submerged in the brine, an airlock valve to seal each jar tightly, and an extraction valve for opening when ready to eat. You can buy a quality fermentation kit for less than $50.
