I’ve been inspired to take advantage of the backyard fruit that is available all over the Bay Area, and my first adventure was picking up apples and pears from a woman named Michelle, who grew them in her South San Francisco backyard (it’s amazing what one can find on Craigslist). I have no idea how many pounds there were, but I took home three large grocery bags full of lovely little fruit. Can’t wait to start experimenting with recipes for these babies!
Please let me know if you have any fruit that needs harvesting on your trees. I’m happy to pick it and share some jam as a thank-you!
