Kraut Pounder (Maple Wood)
The perfect tool to pack your cabbage and other vegetables into glass jars. The shorter end can also be used to muddle cocktails, and the longer end can serve as a meat pounder.
Handmade in Vermont, USA of hard maple wood and finished with a food-grade protective oil. 11 inches long.
I noticed that some of the ChouAmi recipes said that I should use a wooden spoon or a rolling pin (who has one of those?) or a pounder to compact the vegetables in the jar. I ordered the pounder and I am very glad that I did. It has a large surface which makes it easy to compact my ferment and it is balanced in my hand. I also like that it is embossed with the ChouAmi logo and that it is made from Vermont maple. My first ferment is the holiday kraut which is looking wonderful on my counter. It is only the fifth day but I cannot wait to open it!
Thank you Gene! We're glad you like the pounder. You can also use the smaller end as a cocktail muddler, and the bigger end as a meat pounder.
