Large 2 Gallon open crock fermentation vessel, perfect for fermenting vegetables by covering them with rice bran paste. Our vessel makes this unique Japanese method so satisfying since we designed a wide opening for burying various vegetables you choose to ferment. The nukazuke vessel is available in 3 glazes – Desert yellow glaze and Aspen white. The inside is glazed with a durable, non-toxic dark brown glaze, our Earth glaze.
The Nukazuke fermenting container is available in 2-Gallon Desert:
Desert- The monumental beauty of the deserts echos in your hands when you touch this vessel, transcending the landscape onto your kitchen counter. The Desert glaze design is a combination of two glazes; inside is a brown-black glaze that is very functional with its smooth, shiny surface as it is easy to clean. Outside is a matte yellow-ochre color, a wood ash glaze with rusty brown spots, its texture practical for handling in a wet environment.
