Interested in cooking with gleaned fruit from Seattle’s urban orchards? Check out our recipe list for ways to bake, jam, pickle, and dry fruits found growing in our community.  If you join as a City Fruit member, you’ll be part of our Member Baker’s Club! Whenever we have excess fruit during the harvest season, you’ll receive an email with an invitation to pick some up from our office (while supplies last).
