It's about that time. Thank you for following along, and a special thanks to Illene for chatting with us today!
Anyone interested in canning, Illene says she is teaching a free class at an event coming up on Saturday, October 24th. The event is called In The Dip, hosted by Keep St. Pete Local. It's from 11-5 at 22nd Street S and 6 Avenue S.
The one thing that immediately stands out about your product is the unique flavors. Where do you get your inspiration? How many different flavors do you think you've come up with at this point?
Very cool. Now let's talk about the cooking process. All of your jams, pickles and mustards are hand-canned. Walk us through your process.
The Urban Canning Co. just landed a deal to sell at Mazzaro's, and they are in other retail spaces, but the business got its start at local farmers markets. Can you talk a little bit about your relationship with the community?
Great! Let's get started. First of all, tell everyone a little bit about your business. #cookclub
Hey Illene, are you here?
Thanks for a great chat this week, everyone. We'll see you back here same time next week. Stay tuned for the topic, and bring your foodie Qs!
Not exactly beer, but I tried a home-brewed hibiscus and rose mead while working on this issue that was DIVINE.
Datz4Foodies, at a three-day food conference I went to just this past week, I tried a salmon-caviar appetizer made with caviar from right down in Sarasota. The flavors were among the most exotic I've had!
