Started in 2011, Crock and Jar is dedicated to capturing the seasons, to help you eat locally all year round. They also believe in creating unique flavors, using time honored food preservation techniques. Started by Food Preservationist Michaela Hayes, she believes in the sour, sweet, salt and spice of canning and fermentation. Michaela also loves teaching others about fermenting and eating locally, as she has taught at Stone Barns, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and more. Always wanted to know more about eating locally, canning, and preservation, but were too afraid to ask? Tune-in to this episode to learn more from the expert! Also find out about some amazing beer events coming up very soon this August and September, such as the New York City Brewers Guild Block Party, and the Brooklyn Wort! This program has been sponsored by Whole Foods Market.
