This Rhubarb Orange Jam Preserves Recipe makes about 4 ounces (250 ml) of delicious cooked rhubarb jam.
The fresh oranges and rhubarb combine to give it an eye-pleasing colour and a palate-pleasing taste!
If you wish, you can also add a little bit of ginger.
3 medium-large oranges
4 cups chopped rhubarb, (about 1/2" size pieces)
4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/4 cup minced crystallized ginger, optional
Remove about 2 tbsp. of orange peel from the oranges and set aside.
Peel and section the oranges, removing the pitch, seeds and membranes.
Chop the orange segments into pieces, reserving any juices.
In a large pan combine the chopped rhubarb, orange rind, and the oranges with any juice.
Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
Reduce heat to medium-low, and allow mixture to simmer for about 5 minutes.
Slowly pour in the sugar, stirring constantly to prevent sticking and burning. (If desired stir in 1/4 cup minced crystallized ginger at this stage.)
Return heat to high and bring mixture to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved.
Reduce heat to medium-high and continue to boil, stirring constantly and reducing heat further as the mixture thickens for about 10 - 15 minutes, or until thickened.
Remove mixture from heat and skim off any foam.
Ladle into sterilized jars to within 1/4 inch of the rim tops, and wipe rims if needed.
Apply prepared lids and rings, tighten to fingertip-tight.
Process jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes, or as directed by the Water Canner instructions.
