What I’m up to…

Hi Folks! With the closing of the Underground Market and some life changes (I’ve recently started a new job that is fantastic, but all-consuming), I’ve decided to put Urban Preserves on hiatus for the near future. I still have some product for sale (feel free to email me at to find out what I have available and arrange to pick up an order).

In the meantime, I’ve been devoting much of my time to food blogging instead. You can follow me at to get cool recipes that are scaled for one or two-person households, but don’t sacrifice the best ingredients and techniques for the sake of convenience. Basically, I share ideas for making things from scratch, cooking inspired meals, and doing it in a way that is sustainable for a solo cook. I hope you enjoy!


Blog Round 2!

Thanks to those of you who have been stopping by due to picking up my card at a few recent events! As you can see, I’ve been lax at keeping my blog up to date. I’m hoping to post a few updates over the next days, as well as share about my other adventures in cooking and canning!

Recently, I have been busy with participating in the East Bay Homemade Food Swap, Underground Market, and Homegrown Marin

Also, I wont be selling via my blog for the moment, in advance of an exciting announcement about opportunities to buy online! Feel free to email me directly if you have any ordering needs at the moment.

Underground Market in SF Tomorrow!

Hi Urban Preserves Fans! I’ll be back at the SF Underground market at SOMArts in SoMa (934 Brannan Street, SF 94103) for the daytime session, from 11am to 4pm. Lots of new flavors, and I’m looking forward to seeing some of you there! If you fill out a pre-order on the site by midnight tonight, I can hold any items for you. The order form to the right is up to date with current inventory.

So it begins! I’ve spent the last couple of months learning all about preserving, and testing out recipes. Based on feedback from friends who have tried the finished products, I’ve ended up offering many of my jams for sale. This blog will allow me to post photos of the finished product, and as I move forward, hopefully some action shots of the creation process. Feel free to contact me with any questions.
