You may recall that a small group of us ladies get together to make jam from surplus fruit picked or donated, pour it into recycled Sweetree honey jars and give them to our local food bank. We have recently made some delicious plum and strawberry jams (plums thanks to our neighbour and strawberries thanks to a donation by The Strawberry Farm on Newells Road). We've just dropped off a few boxes of the jams to our local food bank in Ngaurawahia, which will be handed out to those in need. What a great service they provide!
Thanks to those customers that give Sweetree honey jars back to us at the Hamilton Farmers Market! We particularly like to give to food bank small jars to make the jam go around more people, so keep saving them up for us!
