now that’s a crock of…
well, not fruit yet.
i am very excited to start my confiture de tigresse but alas, my gooseberries are not quite ready for prime time,
and the strawberries at thompson finch are indeed ready for picking.
but i won’t be there until next tuesday when i’ll be meeting-up with kate from hip girl’s guide to homemaking, julia from what julia ate, and shae from hitchhiking to heaven – for a berry pickin’ good time!
but my crock is in and she’s a beaut!
this is the 5L which is a bit more than a gallon.
it is a slightly different shape than the one i showed here which i now understand to be the 10L crock.
i purchased mine here. since then i’ve found a great source for a lot of things canning & preserving. one of my favorite on-line shops, kitchen krafts, just opened a new division called canning supply. it focuses solely on all things needed for preserving and you can find these crocks and a lot of other great and useful things there.
if you are planning to start your very own confiture de vieux garçon this season but don’t want to invest in the above fermentation crock, they offer a 1.3 gallon wire bail jar at a very good price. it would be perfect for this project, or any other type of fermenting.
stay tuned, ’cause there will be some fruit dunking going on here soon!
