Why I Love This Recipe

Nothing beats those economic blues like making rhubarb jam. It's so simple and so good.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs/6 cups Rhubarb (1bs equals 3 cups rhubarb)
3 cups Sugar



Select the rhubarb that is the most red.

Wash and chop off any leaves or green parts and discard

Dice the rhubarb into quarter bits

Measure it and put it in a large bowl

Add half the amount of white sugar

Mix, cover, and let stand overnight on the counter

Refrigerate next day is you don’t want to cook


Stir the rhubarb in the bowl

Then, place in large cooking pot

Bring to boil, constantly stirring

Reduce heat and continue to stir

Break up large bits of rhubarb with spoon

When mixture thickens to jam like texture, turn off heat

Allow to cool on stove top uncovered

Mixture will thicken even more


Spoon cooled jam in jars with tops that have seals


Put in refrigerator
