LEAVEN IN THE BOTTLE

LEAVEN IN A BOTTLEYou have a problem — not what is sour cabbage and salted cucumbers? In fact, the coming fall always provokes a deficit of three-liter cans. Well, in my family, this problem does not exist here already for a few years we use for this purpose plastic bottles from under drinking water with a capacity of five and ten litres. Of course, they have a small mouth, and shove it through the cabbage or cucumbers difficult, but that’s no reason to abandon such a capacious tanks. As it turned out, to provide them with cover is not too difficult.

To do this vessel, you will need two identical plastic container — one will actually capacity, as shown in the figure, and another — only cover. It is most convenient to use bottles with horizontal corrugations (ridges) — in this case, the cap will be firmly fixed on a plastic container.

If the technology of salting or fermentation requires the use of “oppression”, then we cover the cabbage or, for example, mushrooms with a wooden circle (we put out in the open more pot), then install the cover and passed through the neck of a wooden rod of circular cross-section. To press the wooden circle to the contents of the container, use a rubber cord or rubber ring, cut from an old inner tube.
