Fitting a brewer's airlock into the lid of a Mason jar is another quick and easy modification that turns the jar into a fermentation chamber. The airlock is a little plastic device with a volume of water in it, such that CO2 can pass out through it, but no air can come back in. This lets you set your pickles, beer, or whatnot to fermenting and allows them to emit carbon dioxide smoothly without letting in outside contamination.

fermented dill pickles - i've been reading about fermented food and how good it is for you... this recipe looks yummy and is certainly easy... won't have enough of my own cukes to make these, but am going to the farmer's market tomorrow to see if i can find some!
