Why? Because you can! And pickle, and jam, or otherwise celebrate the resurgence of the domestic arts our forebears held so dear. Put on your best apron and step into our kitchen, won't you?
Make loquat preserves, loquat butter and even loquat leather. Links in the post offer up places to turn for other loqua(t)ious endeavors!
Loquats are delicious and you can forage or trade for them throughout parts of CA. So make some chutney and you're welcome to use my original, hand-drawn label to dress up the jars, too.
