) concern of lectins
I've got one of these http://www.pickl-it.com/
with a set of glass "Pickle Pebbles" that works quite well. Man, does that thing stink up the house when you open it, though!
You just add salt, water, veg, then come back in a couple weeks or so... and you've got something both funky & delicious.
I've been going through this brand and enjoying all of their Kraut offerings so far, https://www.farmhouseculture.com/
but I am a little turned off by the plastic packaging. I'd love to see more brands featuring the actual strains used on the back label (or some vetted starters) -- I've heard good things about "histamine-free / D-Lactate free" probiotics or cool new strains like "Lactobacillus plantarum TWK10" but you just don't see these things on your average pickle / starter.
