Sugar Free Rhubarb Cherry Jam

Cindi Bauer


This was my first attempt at making a sugar free rhubarb jam. I asked my hubby what he thought of the jam, and he stated that it was good! I myself, thought it tasted pretty good as well. The jam had a nice spreading consistency, and it wasn't overly sweet. While I thought the jam was slightly tart (in taste), my husband on the other hand, did not! I did think the jam had a nice cherry fragrant to it, even more so than the original rhubarb cherry jam that I make. In the end, I am pleased as to how the jam turned out!
