It is so simple to have home made Japanese style pickles at home; all you need is this pickle maker, some favorite vegetables, some salt, slivers of ginger and a little lemon peel or other aromatic accent. Most Japanese homes will make some sort of signature pickle that the family can enjoy at every meal. Perhaps you like cucumbers or eggplant or cabbage pickles. All you need to do is simply wash the vegetables, massage them with salt, add the accent pieces (ginger or lemon peel) and place together in layers in this Japanese Pickle Maker container.
The lid includes a pressurized surface plate that will press down upon the contents of the container and over a course of a few hours or days will remove the excess water from the vegetables and create simple pressed pickles that will be lightly seasoned with the salted brine and the accent flavors.
The smaller size of this pickle container is perfect for little portions and experimenting with different vegetables. Made in Japan.
