How to Make Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam

Step-by-Step

  1. Place lemon juice, berries and rhubarb into a large sauce pan. Bring to a low boil and reduce heat to a simmer for about 30 min.
  2. Use a potato masher to break down the fruit. I prefer a hand beverage blender for a smoother pulp.

    Add sugar 1 cup at a time. After 6 cups I start to taste test after each cup. Depending on the sweetness of the berries, 10 cups can be too sweet.
  3. Bring to a rolling boil and reduce to low heat. Skim the foam off the top. A small amount of Butter can be used to reduce the remaining foam.

    Add pectin and stir well.
  4. Pour Jam into hot, sterile, 1/2 Pint jars. Clean the rim and place the lid and band on, hand tight. Place jars into a hot water bath. Process for 15 min.
