This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEA curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Roundwood Working.

Working in an apartment often means getting by with tools that aren’t entirely perfect for the job. So often tasks that apply to permaculture on large tracts of land mean large tools. Thankfully fermentation is not one of those tasks. A simple sauerkraut stomper will be a tool that works just as well on a farm as in an apartment. Carve one from a single piece of wood to fit in a wide-mouth jar so you can easily make sauerkraut or similar fermented foods more readily. If you happen to have a pole lathe, you may use that, but remember that this should be made without power tools.

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
Carve a sauerkraut stomper from a single piece of wood.
Make sure the head is suited to a wide-mouth jar.
Ensure the handle length is long enough so that you can easily hold it and withdraw it even when it is fully within the jar.
Should be carved with manual hand tools.

To document and become certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:
- Show the original piece of wood and the tools you will be using
- Show the tool after it is partially finished, at around the halfway point
- Show the finished stomper in a jar or in use making sauerkraut
