If someone said to me that I could have a shopping spree at any store in NYC without hesitation I would want it to be at The Brooklyn Kitchen. Not only do they have the most kick ass canning section of any store in the city, they have great groceries, cheeses, a meat shop run by their partners in business The Meat Hook, and tons of new and vintage cooking supplies, utensils, knives and clases to boot!
This afternoon I spent the day making Concord Grape Jam and canning it in Weck jars, my first ever Weck experience, which is the next post I’m going to write after this, but this seemed a good start because if you want Weck supplies no place else comes close to having the extensive selection that you will find here.
Of course they have lots of Ball jars and all the needed accoutrement as well.
Notice in the above picture on the bottom left is local organic ginger! I bought some of course. And below is some of their bulk goods – I love buying in bulk who needs all that packaging anyway? Just something else to recycle.
In addition to wonderful meats and quirky homemade sausages The Meat Hook makes a small selection of packaged goods, my favorite is the one below.
Seriously folks if you live here or if you are visiting if you are interested in food, beer making, kitchen supplies, cooking classes you got to visit the Brooklyn Kitchen, it’s every foodies Disneyland.
