making jam with NFFtT apricots


Apricots picked for Not Far From the Tree (NFFtT) in late July 2015.

Peeling and pitting these tiny apricots was a little bit labour intensive but definitely worth the effort. This is how much of all those little apricots that went into our compost bin.

Not Far From the Tree We pick fruit from Toronto trees and share it with Toronto people. […]
1/3 is offered to the tree owner, 1/3 is shared among the volunteers, and 1/3 is delivered by bicycle to be donated to food banks, shelters, and community kitchens in the neighbourhood so that we’re putting this existing source of fresh fruit to good use. It’s a win-win-win situation!
