  • We made our own marshmallows the other night! It's something Brian has been wanting to try ever since we discovered SMASHMALLOW from @snackapade at a natural foods expo in Baltimore last summer. Marshmallows are not something either of us ever really eat with the exception of the occasional s'more on the occasional camping trip. I guess because the stuff of our childhood was so uninspired and kind of weird. The thought of gourmet mallows never even occurred to us - until now. -

I wanted them to be vegan and I found a great recipe from @happyfoodholly that was simple to make. We even spiced them up a bit by making a Mexican hot chocolate dusting the was equally simple to make - cocoa powder, cinnamon, cayenne, red chili powder and sugar. Definitely made our s'mores muy deliciosos! - - - -

  • We've been wanting to try the Impossible Burger for a while now, merely out of curiosity. We finally had our chance when we visited @ukiahbrewingco for lunch recently. -
I would have to say that if we hadn't already known that it wasn't actually beef, it would have been damn near impossible to tell. I guess that's where the name comes from, lol. -
But seriously, the look, the smell, the mouthfeel - it was all spot on. And it didn't hurt that it was perfectly prepared - pink and juicy in the middle. -
It's just too bad that we are not into the monoculture of soy and corn, so this will have to be chalked up to "at least we tried it". Besides, it's hard to find a burger, impossible or not, that isn't fast food that doesn't cost less than $15 these days. FIFTEEN dollars!! For a burger!! Ugh.
-
Anywho, I've successfully eliminated pork from my diet and am pretty much done with beef, but I rarely ate it anyway. I suppose if I have the rare hankering for a burger, I'll have to go the trusty ol' veggie burger route. Or live without. I've gotten pretty good at living without, ha!

  • Suffering a little #cabinenvy. I just love A frame cabins, don't you? 🔺⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
They may not be the most practical design, but they sure are pretty. I wouldn't mind building one someday if I found just the right piece of land. A girl can dream, can't she? ✨ Le sigh ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Perk of campground work - access to a canoe and a lovely river just outside our door. It's a bit too cold for swimming and there's no fishing to be done in the summertime. But a leisurely float during downtime is all we need to clear our heads. 🛶🏞⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Lots of green coming from the local farmers market. One thing about trying to eat seasonally is ending up with a whole lot of the same thing for weeks on end. So, getting creative with the ingredients available is the trick. ☝️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When I look at this, I think fermented mustard greens, chard gratin, fava bean humus and fava bean pasta. Yes, those big, green pods in the middle are fava beans grown locally. We love to try new things. 🥬🥗⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And, of course, if you put things up through canning or dehydration, you can enjoy the spoils of last season if you just can't wait for your favorite veggies to come in. Like these gorgeous pickles and herbed salt from @double_d_farm. They even harvest their own sea salt! So cool! 🌊 💫⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

INTRODUCING

A New Brand From The Modern Journeymen

The Modern Journeymen are excited to announce our brand new line of simple, quality products for fermenters, homesteaders, crafters and artisans!


About Wildcraft Culture

In the few years that we’ve been doing what we do, we’ve discovered a culture of creative and self-sufficient people who have a need for uncomplicated, efficient tools.

In our own search, we've had some difficulty finding good quality products that work the way we want them to.

We decided to start designing a range of tools to fill that need, whether it be for fermentation, crafting, or just plan ol' homesteading.

Tools that make creating & crafting easier for the beginner, but are also dependable and durable enough for everyday use to give you more consistent quality through all your batches.

With Wildcraft Culture, each product is tested personally by us for durability and ease of use.

As always, we want to share knowledge and teach those of you who are just getting started and provide expert resources for those who are past the basics.

Therefore, we will regularly post training videos, inspirational content and recipes for all of our products.


We enjoy the variety of ferments we get by doing small batches in mason jars. Instead of the standard crocks and larger vessels, we enjoy making pint, quart, and half gallon batches of our ferments.

But we weren't happy with the tools available and wanted something better.

So, for our first product, we wanted to create a tool that would make fermenting in jars less intimidating and a little more foolproof...

A WIDE MOUTH MASON JAR

FERMENTATION KIT


Fermenting Weights

Easy Grip Handle

Our innovative design comes with a large glass handle for easy placement and removal into wide mouth mason jars.

Smooth Flat Bottom

Ensures even pressure on your ingredients and prevents air bubbles forming below the weight.

Non-porous & Lead Free

Weights are made of lead-free solid glass, making them easy to clean and will not take on any odors or colors, even with everyday use.

Reduces Infections

Helps keep the nasties away (mold, fungus, etc.), by ensuring that your veggies stay beneath the brine in an anaerobic environment.

Silicone Airlocks

Waterless Airlocks

Unlike traditional airlocks, ours require no liquid or pumps to function properly.

Automatically Vents

Prevents oxygen from entering the jar but allows CO2 gas to escape through a small slit.

Food Grade Silicone

Made from food grade silicone, there is no worry about it coming in contact with your ferment.

Low Profile Design

Easily store your ferments in tighter spaces, such as a shelf or in a cabinet.

Guides, Recipes and Support

Just started fermenting? We're here to help. We'll regularly post new recipe ideas and fermenting guides on the site. And feel free to reach out with any specific questions.

Everything is Dishwasher Safe

No time to hand wash? No problem! Our lids and airlocks are made tough. Just toss in the dishwasher with other plates and glassware.

Comes with 4 Different Airlock Colors

Easily identify your ferments with different airlock colors. Included in every set is one of each: Red, Blue, Green & Purple
