En Vitesse: Public Fruit Jam

My friends at Fallen Fruit are at it again - This Sunday from 10am - 1pm is their fourth annual Public Fruit Jam at Machine Project. Bring home-grown or publicly-foraged fruit and though there will be some supplies on hand, bring as many clean, empty jars as you have. At the end everyone will leave with a jar of communal jam.
The kinds of jam we make will improvise on the fruit that people provide. The fruit can be fresh or frozen. Fallen Fruit will bring public fruit. We are looking for radical and experimental jams as well, like basil guava or lemon pepper jelly. We’ll discuss the basics of jam and jelly making, pectin and bindings, as well as the communal power of shared fruit and the liberation of public fruit.
