Attention beloved members: We would like you to join Fallen Fruit at Machine Project for a Fruit Jam!
Bring your home-grown or street-picked fruit and come jam with us. Bring clean, empty jars if you have them and bring a friend too! The jam we make is collaborative and improvised – we don’t work with recipes. This year’s jam (the 6th annual one) will be small and intimate, down-home style, so we have a reservation system to keep it in scale.
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 strawberry grapefruit or lemon pepper-and-lavender 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.
