Plain and simple jam for rhubarb lovers!
The orange juice and orange zest combine with the tartness of the rhubarb to create an amazing natural sweetness.
I altered this recipe recently and added the flavoured gelatin ("Jello") and the low-sugar pectin to give the jam a thicker consistency and a beautiful deep red colour.
Here is how to make this delectable rhubarb jam.
For an even thicker jam, combine the fresh rhubarb and sugar in a bowl, and allow the mixture to sit for about 3 hours prior to making the jam, and then omit the water ingredient.
(above) What you need to make Rhubarb Freezer Jam (plus 1/2 package of pectin crystals).
7 cups fresh rhubarb, chopped
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp. grated orange zest/rind
1/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup water
1/2 pkg. (of a 57 gr. size pkg.) low sugar pectin
2 tbsp. strawberry or raspberry flavoured gelatin (Ex: "Jello")
In a pan, combine the chopped rhubarb pieces, granulated sugar, orange zest, orange juice and the water.
Bring the mixture to a full boil, stirring often to help prevent sticking and burning.
Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook the mixture for 35 - 40 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened, stirring often to prevent sticking and burning.
After about 40 minutes slowly add the 1/2 pkge. of pectin and stir well to combine.
Allow mixture to boil for another 3 minutes.
Remove mixture from heat.
Slowly, while stirring, add the flavoured gelatin and mix until well combined.
Pour jam into freezer-safe containers or canning jars, leaving about a 1/2" - 1" headspace and top with lids.
Allow fresh jam to stand on the counter until cooled.
Store jam in freezer, or store it in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks ... but it will most likely not last than long if your family likes rhubarb like ours does!
Makes about 6 cups / 3 pints or 48 oz. of delicious jam!
This freezer / refrigerator rhubarb jam makes a great topping for ice cream, pudding, cheesecake, and yogurt too!
