Elizabeth Madden
Rare Bird Preserves
Oak Park, IL

As a student at the French Pastry School in Chicago, Founder, Elizabeth Madden fell in love with jam making. Elizabeth was moved by the beauty and simplicity of jam making. The fruit used within the preserves are at their highest quality and are locally and sustainably grown as much as possible. Elizabeth adds her own uniqueness to her batches by blending seasoned herbs, chocolates, and other distinctive ingredients into the delicious spreads.

Elizabeth believes her preserves can be used “beyond breakfast”. She enjoys combining the jams into her cooking at throughout the day. Anything from Vinaigrettes to a cocktails, Elizabeth has inspired new creations and shares them with everyone on the Rare Bird Blog.
