Canning supplies in NYC
I usually order through Ace Hardware, but sometimes I need things in a hurry! Any idea where I can get canning supplies like a new pressure weight, etc.? A probe thermometer for my dehydrator?
Also, anyone know where to get a pressure canner gauge tested around here?
I was only buying jars and lids from them and didnt check what other products they carried but the best prices i could find on ball jars was actually at whole foods - the bowery store has the upstairs section where they sell non-food products like supplies and containers.
I headed over to Zabar's (upper west side-Manhattan) but was disappointed..
They had the ball jars which was great but little else equipment wise.
Did some research on the web and found a great place in Brooklyn called Brooklyn Kitchen in the Williamsburg area.
They had it all!
I bought a basic canning Kit which was about $12 bucks and a small canning rack which was about $7. They also have individual items for purchase.
It's like Zabars but kind of in the middle of nowhere, a touch more expensive and run by hipsters who happen to be very friendly and helpful.
Looks like they have canning classes among other things which I may take advantage of..
