Tristan brought home a whole bag full of strawberries from our favorite dumpster. Each carton had one or two bad berries in it, which we removed, and set about jamming. I have to guiltily admit that most times we have a bounty of dumpstered fruit, it gets moldy before we are able to deal with it. Not so this time. We promptly put a pot on the stove, and, pectin at hand, produced 7 beautiful pints of Strawberry Dumpster Jam.
Yes, this will add to our pantry. But we're not trying to be wasteful, here! Just trying to put to use all of the random food we would never get around to eating otherwise.
