After a long absence, here are two photos from the Jam Jam; more photos and commentary to follow in the coming days. The first photo is a jar of 45th Street (Oakland) applesauce made during the 18 Reasons/ Slow Food Nation Youth Movement Jam Jam. The second photo is a small jar of applesauce, Oakland Hills lemon preserve, and Oakland Hills marmalade. More later.
Tomorrow night I am making membrillo for the first time. These are foraged from a tree in the Oakland Hills. The tree sits on a piece of property that is completely vacant and empty aside from the quince tree. The house may have burned down in the fires in the 1990s, but the quince tree still stands.
