Kansas City Canning Co.

Old traditions meet new flavors in Kansas City Canning Co.’s jars. Tim Tuohy seeks out the most local, seasonal and unique ingredients he can find for his pickles, preserves and shrubs, then cans them for year round enjoyment - just like in the olden days.

Tim was raised canning with his grandmother in New Jersey (where they canned tomatoes for Sunday sauce). In New York City, while Tim was getting his degree at the Institute of Culinary Education, he moved into an apartment in Queens that had a cherry tree in the backyard, he started harvesting the fruit, making shrubs and pies, and having a lot of fun doing it.

When he moved to Kansas City in 2013, he continued canning fruit and year later, Kansas City Canning Co. was born.

Every jar Tim makes is hand-packed and hand-labeled, for truly handcrafted products and pickles that are 100% dill-ish, and truly a labor of love.
