• Step 1

    Scoop one handful of Pickled Flakes into an airtight bucket or a purposefully designed Bokashi bin. 

    If using an airtight bucket we suggest adding cardboard (ripped up to create a few cm layer) OR a large handful of wood mulch/shavings to the bottom of your bucket to absorb any liquid from food scraps.

    Alternatively you can use a home compostable bin liner to line your bucket.

  • Step 2

    Scrape your food scraps into a kitchen caddy which then gets emptied once a day into the airtight bucket. Make sure you have chopped up anything bigger than your fist to maximise the pickling process!

  • Step 3

    Squash food using a potato masher or the lid of your kitchen caddy to remove as much air as possible.

  • Step 4

    Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of Pickled Flakes to each layer of scraps (about 2.5 litres/layer). 

    Make sure you double this amount if adding meat, fish, dairy products and bones/shells.

  • Step 5

    Seal your lid tight so air and pests can't get in!

  • Step 6

    Store your bucket under the kitchen bench, in a garage or outside undercover preferably out of direct sunlight.

    When full, leave the bucket to pickle further for 7-10 days until it's ready to be emptied into a home compost bin or bury at least 30cm deep into your garden.
