$125.00 Sale Save

Available for preorder until Saturday, June 22nd! All orders will begin shipping Monday, July 1st.

Description:

Picklestone is a glass bottle that simplifies the process of making traditional Japanese pickles and preserved vegetables known as tsukemono.

Start by placing diced vegetables inside the glass bottle, sprinkle on Picklestone's newly developed UMAMI seasoning (or use salt, chili pepper, and konbu), then put the stone on top and wait. With these three simple steps, you're not just making delicious tsukemono, you're also incorporating the health benefits of fermented foods into your diet and eliminating vegetable deficiency. Vegetable skins, roots, and leaves can all be used instead of discarded, helping to reduce food waste as well.
