Joanne's Urban Pantry was created out of my passion for preserving Ontario Produce.  I use both canning and fermentation methods to create simple, flavourful preserves.


 I have extensive culinary training from both George Brown College and Liaison Culinary College  and work with recipes and techniques that have been passed down for generations adapting them to today's food safety standards and food trends and diets.   


My products have no artificial or commercial additives and are low in salt.  My low sugar Jams are lightly sweetened with organic cane sugar and are commercial pectin free.

I am sensitive to food diets, allergies and intolerances and I hold a current National Food Safety Certificate.  My products are made by hand in a commercial kitchen.
