All are welcome to show up — if possible, with empty jars and local fruits, preferably foraged, in hand — and start jamming.
When: Sunday, Aug 2, 2009, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Where: Machine Project, 1200 D N. Alvarado, Los Angeles
How much jam are we talking? “We typically make around 500 jars in about three hours, dozens of different varieties,” says Fallen Fruit in an announcement. “We encourage people not to follow recipes and think of it as a collaboration between citizens of the same town. It’s really fun and delicious!”
Whether or not you make it to Fallen Fruit’s official Jam, you can answer the National Call for a Summer of Public Fruit Jams. Fallen Fruit wants everyone to organize their own jamming sessions — an especially helpful idea for those with overproductive fruit trees in their backyard.
