June brings a plethora of rhubarb to Alaska and one can only eat so much pie, crumble/buckle and muffins. My best advise to any newbie to canning and preserving is to purchase either the Kerr or Ball cookbooks. With over a 100 years behind them, the recipes are almost always fail proof.

Crack open the sunshine of summer in the dead of winter and slather a freshly baked sourdough biscuit with butter and this jam or do the good ol' standby and make a peanut butter and strawberry rhubarb jam sammy!

How to Make Ball Blue Book Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Step-by-Step

  1. Sterilize 1/2 pint jars and lids.
  2. Combine strawberries, rhubarb, lemon juice and pectin in a large saucepan (it will foam up, so use a large pan.) Bring to a boil.
  3. Add sugar, stir to dissolve. Return to a boil and boil hard for 1 minute, stirring all the time.
  4. Ladle hot jam into jars leaving 1/4" space at the top. Wipe the rim of the jars with a damp paper towel to remove any jam. Adjust lids and rings (not over tight.)
  5. Process 10 minutes in a water bath canner. *A very large stockpot with a tight lid will work just fine if you don't have a canner.
