STRAWBERRY & RHUBARB JAM
- 800g rhubarb stalks, chopped (leaves discarded)
- 800g strawberries, hulled and quartered
- 2 lemons (juice and zest)
- 600g caster sugar
- ½ cup of water
- Rose water to taste
- Add the rhubarb, strawberries, lemon juice, zest, and ½ cup of water to your jam pan. Let the fruit soften on a slow heat.
- When soft add the sugar and rose water, then increase the heat. This will take approximately 20 minutes of cooking time.
- Stir occasionally to make sure the mixture isn’t sticking.
- Place the funnel over your beautiful, sterilised jar then ladle the jam to fill.
