Sunshine, warm autumn atmosphere, more than 60 enthusiastic pickers, 3 different routes and tons of fruits – from apples to elderberries, pears and even some blackberries and hazelnuts – this was Day 1 of Pick’n’Jam! The day after, Smålands kitchen turned into a cosy jam-session. The results were a pleasant-smelling pub and several kilos of elderberry jelly, plum jam and apple mousse.
A big thanks goes to Smålands nation – especially to Tiia, Alex, Martin and Christina – for sharing their facilities, helping preparing the event and guiding the pickers!
We hope you got inspired to pick more fruits and prepare more jam! Please spread the word, like and share us on Facebook, share harvest spots on the map and your favourite recipes on the blog. Find some more pictures of the event on our blog.
