The kinds of jam they make will improvise on the fruit that people provide. The fruit can be fresh or frozen. Fallen Fruit will bring public fruit. They are looking for radical and experimental jams as well, like basil guava or lemon pepper jelly. They’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.
Fallen Fruit also leads mappings of public fruit, any fruit which hangs over into public areas or is planted on public land, in various areas.
