I didn"t grow up with rhubarb, but once I started gardening and discovered how easy this perennial fruit was lớn grow I planted it & now I am hooked on this tart fruit (that"s actually a vegetable, but it"s mostly used as a fruit).

Rhubarb plants provide you with stalks for months that you can use to lớn make things like orange-rhubarb muffins, rhubarb chutney, lemon rhubarb butter, and even a barbecue sauce made with rhubarb.

However I"m not a huge fan hâm mộ of large chunks of rhubarb cooked into pies or crisps. It"s a texture issue (or stringy issue - whatever you want to call it).

So I either dice it up really small, or cook it down because then what"s left is just that great rhubarb flavor.

Which is exactly what you"ll get with this recipe for honey rhubarb ginger jam - lot of tart rhubarb flavor sweetened with honey and just a touch of ginger to địa chỉ some zing.

Lower Sugar Rhubarb Jam

I used to lớn think (like many others, I"m guessing) that because rhubarb was tart, you needed to use a lot of sugar in anything you made with it. Lượt thích a LOT - many recipes hotline for more sugar than fruit.

But the more I work to decrease the amount of sugar we eat in our homemade foods, the more we find we don"t need all that sugar.

And using only a natural sugar allows the nice, complex flavor of rhubarb khổng lồ not be completely covered up with heaps of sugar.

And this jam is so easy, making just a small batch of 3 half-pint jars, it"s a great way to try out not only cooking rhubarb with less sugar, but also trying your hand at canning if you haven"t before.
