4.2.3 Where can I find pickle crocks?

Citation? Crocks can be found at Williams Sonoma, a mail order store
in California. They have two sizes and are quite dear, small size
about $20. I found some great pickling jars at Pier 1 Imports. Largest
size about 1 gal goes for $12. I like the next size down, about 1.5
quart for $7. (1995-1996 prices). [Noticed that Alltrista (Ball
Canning Co.) also sells crocks for about $15.--LEB].

From Bubba Leroy Bubba.Leroy@FLYING.NET:

(I get mine at the) asian market in my area-there are 4 such markets
-they use them for kimchi and they do just fine, but then so do the
gallon plastic jars that every restaurant gets mayo and relish in. I
have a five gallon bucket that makes very nice dill pickles and most
places will give you all you want. [Check out the food-grade plastic
story (good for pickle crocks) in Tips 'N Tricks.--LEB
