Pineapple Ginger Rhubarb Marmalade

Sherry Blizzard


What to do with all that rhubarb! Make this wonderful marmalade. The original recipe came from a handout from my local Cooperative Extension Office. Since I had a lot of frozen ginger, I decided to add in a few fine-gratings and it took this marmalade to whole new level.

Envision this marmalade served over an orange cake or cheese blintzes for that special someone you love...the possibilities for this are endless.

You don't need a pressure canner for this. A large stockpot to waterbath will do.

This recipe made 8 - 1/2 pint jelly jars.
