Every spring, I say I'm gonna do it.
And then I don't.
I don't know why?!
Rhubarb is easy to grow: plant it and pretty much forget it!
But this year, I did it.
I made strawberry-rhubarb jam.
Now, this is something quite different from your average jam.
Rhubarb has a different texture, and as you know, a more tart flavor.
My son, the picky eater, just LOVES it.
(He will pick up a clean stalk of rhubarb and bite into it!
That makes me SHIVER!!)
But with this jam on his peanut butter sandwich,
not one bite is ever left!
Oh. How did I make it?
Well, I winged it.
I cut up a whole bunch of rhubarb, in small pieces.
I got frozen strawberries out of the freezer.
I added lemon juice.
I added just enough sugar,
and some strawberry jello for color,
and I cooked it to a decent consistency.
Then, I put it into sterilized jars, with hot lids, and processed for twenty minutes.
But if you want a REAL recipe...
this one is for the freezer: go here.
