Punk Domestics & BCF Food Preservation Swap!

Hey, Bay Area jammers! Join Punk Domestics and Blue Chair Fruit for a Bay Area food swap, plus the chance to show off what you’ve got and meet other local preservation geeks. Hey, Bay Area jammers!

On Friday July 15, we’ll be gathering at the Blue Chair Fruit kitchens to sample each other’s wares and chat preservation with local amateurs and professionals alike. Best of all, the event will culminate in a DIY food exchange, but with a catch: It’s a free-market exchange. Want that bottle of limoncello? It might cost you three jars of blueberry jam. Or vice versa. You negotiate the value between each other. It all comes down to what the market bears.

Come on down — the party starts at 6pm. You’ll want to arrive right on time so you get a chance to try everything. All manner of preserved food is welcome: jams and jellies, liqueurs, charcuterie, homemade cheese, pickles, or anything else you’ve spent time preserving!

Please bring as much of your favorite preserved item(s) as you want to trade (including serving utensils), plus enough to share with other guests. Gotta get ’em hooked with a free sample first, of course.

*The BCF kitchen’s entrance is on 47th St. and there should be ample street parking. Alternately, we’re a short walk from MacArthur BART!*

RSVP Already!

P.S. Unsure what to make between now and then? Check out Punk Domestics for all kinds of inspiration: they’ve got everything from pickle recipes to tips on making cheese at home!
