Every Monday from 12:30-1:30 p.m., Times food editor Michelle Stark hosts chats about food and cooking on tampabay.com. Today, her guest is Illene Sofranko, the one-woman band behind the Urban Canning Company, a small business based out of St. Petersburg known for its hand-crafted jams, pickles and mustards.
We wrote about Sofranko's business and her journey since she started the company in 2014. And in today's chat we'll talk to her about her canning process, how she is gearing up for farmers market season and canning tips for the home cook. Follow along with the chat here: tbtim.es/lunchtimechats — and we encourage you to ask some questions of your own. See you there.
