Rhubarb and Apple Jam
« on: June 15, 2010, 05:04:39 am »
Rhubarb and Apple Jam
Serves
Made 3 1/2 small jars
Ingredients

720g rhubarb cut into pieces. This weight included 2 granny smith apples cut into pieces
360g CSR jam sugar
juice from 1/2 lemon

I simply cut the rhubarb and apple into pieces.  If you wanted smoother jam you could blitz them in the TMX.
Add the sugar and lemon juice and cook for 30 minutes 1000 speed 1.Test to see if the jam is ready. If not give a further 10 minutes varoma speed 1.

This jam is quite tart ( because it is rhubarb I wanted that) so if you wanted sweeter jam I would add more sugar at the beginning.

Great jam Cookie1. I've never had rhubarb in a jam but I can imagine this combination will work really well. Great way to use that excess rhubarb!! Thanks :-*

Tried this yesterday. Used approx 620g combined rhubarb and apple with 500g jam sugar and juice of 1 medium lemon. Great hit with the family. I'd prefer the tangier version originally posted I think as I like the tartness of rhubarb, however, no-one else eats rhubarb in this household - but they love the jam! Great for when I have too much rhubarb growing. I also added a drop of cochineal to pink it up a bit as my rhubarb is quite green even though the stems look pink! Thanks again for the recipe x

Super delicious jam! a friend gave me some rhubarb and I didnt fancy a crumble.. so I made rhubarb and nashi pear jam.. it is so yummy. I added a little more sugar as I have a sweet tooth!
Thanks for a lovely recipe - will make more tomorrow night with the other half of the rhubarb. I so love making jam!

Have just made this jam and it was absolutely delicious; I dropped a handful of strawberries in as well which was nice. Coles Rhubarb was $10.80 per kilo so it was expensive to make but the end result was well worth it. Many thanks for the recipe.
