There's food poking above the brine! Help?

Dunk'R Photo Occasionally, smaller cuts of food – shredded carrots, sauerkraut, chopped green beans – poke above the brine. There are any number of solutions, including:

  • Place 1 or 2 dill heads under the Dunk’R, spreading them out across the vegetables, holding smaller pieces under the brine
  • Whole cinnamon sticks, 2-3 inches in length, work great for shredded beets, adding a nice warm flavor.
  • Another beet option is to reserve 1/2 beet, cut into thin-slices, and layer them on top the other beets, holding them under the brine.
  • Use your vegetable peeler to shave long carrot segments which can be criss-crossed across the brine top, holding carrots, or other vegetables under the brine.
  • Save a few whole green-beans, and criss-cross them over the smaller cuts – another whole-food method to keeping food under the brine!

Top off your criss-cross shaved carrots, sliced beets or dill heads with the Dunk’R, firmly holding them in place.
