Cool event of the week: Jam Session

The crew over at Machine Project Events, who did the cool moonshine demonstration, are hosting another culinarily-related event on Sunday.
Who: The Fallen Fruit collective
What: a communal jam-making session
Where: Machine Project
When: Sunday August 20th from 12 - 3pm
How: We ask that you bring along any of your home-grown or public fruit (see and any clean, empty glass jars 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. We are looking for radical and experimental jams as well, like basil guava or lemon pepper jelly. WeÂ’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.
...I only have lemons in my backyard, but just yesterday the kiddies and I were snacking on some nasturtiums on Silver Lake Blvd...those might be good in jam!
