See how ChouAmi works in action
ChouAmi™ is a unique and simple fermentation device which fits onto a beautiful and durable French-made glass jar by Le Parfait. It's an easy and no-fuss way to make your own sauerkraut, natural pickles, kimchi, or other lacto-fermented foods at home in small batches.
ChouAmi came into being in Spring 2020 from a successfully-funded Kickstarter campaign, where over 500 passionate supporters from around the world brought our vision of simple at-home fermentation to life.
How to have a successful lacto-fermentation
- Carbon dioxide produced by the fermenting microbes must be released. If not, the container may actually explode.
- Fresh air and oxygen must be kept out because the health promoting lactobacilli bacteria are anaerobic.
- The vegetables must be kept completely submerged in the saltwater brine because exposed vegetables that float to the top can start to spoil.
