Shovels & Rope are an American folk duo from Charleston, South Carolina composed of husband and wife Michael Trent and Cary Ann Hearst.  They sing harmony driven folk, rock and country songs using two old guitars, a kick drum, a snare, a few tambourines, harmonicas, and maybe a little keyboard sometimes.  These tunes get me pumped to get out in the field and work.

These kits fit directly onto canning jars to make a variety of small batch recipes. You can watch them ferment inside the glass jars. This style of pickling uses a timeless method known as brine or lacto-fermentation. The recipe ingredients are placed in a light brine solution. The kit quickly seals the jar, but allows gases to escape during a fermentation, lasting just a few days.
