Simple Rhubarb Jam

Simple Rhubarb Jam

This simple jam can easily include other flavors by adding or swapping your other favorite fruits. The jam freezes well so you can have rhubarb all year long.


makes 4 (7.5 oz) jars


2 pounds (about 12 stalks) rhubarb, chopped

2 cups sugar

1 lemon, zested and juiced

½ cup water

For strawberries: Remove the stems and chop up 2 cups strawberries

For oranges: Add 1 tablespoon orange zest and 1/3 cup orange juice

For apples: Core, peel and chop 4 apples



In a medium saucepan, combine the rhubarb, sugar, lemon zest, 2 tablespoons lemon juice and water. (At this time, add in your other fruits and juice if using). Bring to a boil, then cook over medium-low heat until thick, stirring occasionally, about 45 – 50 minutes. Stir more frequently during the last 15 minutes of cooking to prevent burning.  It will thicken more as it cools.

Ladle into sterile jars and seal with lids and rings. Store opened jars in the refrigerator.
