We have too many fermentation projects right now, so I've started building a pickling shelf, that we'll install in the dark space under the sinks.

Now, I'll build a way to lock the jars in place, and fix that whole thing under the sinks.

@neauoire Behave yourself or Devine will put you on the pickling shelf in the dark space. ~ Traditional German folklore (probably)


Hint: if you need triangular pieces of good wood look for the corners of vegetables wood crates.

Here are some pieces of beech I used as separators for a bottle carrier.

@GustavinoBevilacqua ah yes, I just used whatever scraps I could find, I didn't have vege crates, but I'll keep an eye out :)

@neauoire going to need to get some larger jars so you can take advantage of harvest prices and so you can ferment less frequently.

Unless of course iteration cadence is a pro.

@peregrine do you really think this is the only place we keep pickles?! This is the annex!

@peregrine everywhere else is already overflowing with pickling things

@neauoire thats really good to hear. My fridge is full of bread&butter pickles ATM.

Pretty soon we'll be digging out the giant caning pressure cooker. We're going to have several rounds of tomatoes this year.


Uhm… a piece of inflated inner tube over the lid would avoid hard bangs in case of capsizing, acting as a damper.

@GustavinoBevilacqua I was thinking about building two doors to keep them from falling off. I'll do some tests today.


The sides seem a bit too thin for normal screws: better to mount the hinges with nuts&bolts.
I'll follow the evolution 👍

@neauoire Cauliflower ✔️ Eggplant ✔️ Carrots ✔️ ??? ✔️

@elbosso It's not something we'll be carrying around, it'll be bolted to the backside of the icebox.

@neauoire yeah, but your pic looked tasty - that made me think it would be a good idea to restrict access to jams and other tasty treats for me, so i just blurted out the idea to you - as you inspired me ...
