About the Jam Maker:
Anarchy in a Jar is run by Laena McCarthy, who makes jam, jelly, preserves and chutney in Brooklyn, New York. Laena learned the art of jam making from her mother, who taught her to source local ingredients from small farms and her own garden. After traveling around the world and living in Antarctica, Laena ended up back in New York at an opportune time, when there is a revived demand for fresh, local, creative food. With help from her team of tasters, fellow food makers and jam fans, she stirs her eclectic experience into elixirs of the jar.
