I consider this sweet flavorful jam summer in a jar! The fruity concoction is simply scrumptious spread on toast, English muffins and more. —Peggy Fleming, East Troy, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh strawberries, crushed
  • 2 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
  • 1/4 cup bottled lemon juice
  • 1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
  • 5-1/2 cups sugar

Nutritional Facts

2 tablespoon: 99 calories, trace fat (trace saturated fat), 0mg cholesterol, 1mg sodium, 25g carbohydrate (24g sugars, trace fiber), trace protein

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, combine strawberries, rhubarb and lemon juice; stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil and stir 1 minute.
  2. Remove from heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into six hot sterilized pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles and adjust headspace, if necessary, by adding hot mixture. Wipe rims. Center lids on jars; screw on bands until fingertip tight.
  3. Place jars into canner with simmering water, ensuring that they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil; process for 5 minutes. Remove jars and cool. Yield: about 6 pints.
Editor's Note: When I start a canning recipe the very first thing I do is fill the canner with water and start heating the water. It takes quite a while for that large amount of water to come to a boil.

"Strawberry rhubarb flavor combination is one of my favorites and this recipe doesn't disappoint. The tartness of the rhubarb cuts down on the sweetness of the strawberries for the perfect bite. This is great heated up and spooned over ice cream or pound cake too."

"This is really good. I actually don't like strawberry jam, but I liked this because the rhubarb cut the sweetness. My husband (who loves strawberry rhubarb pie) really enjoyed this."

"I have a batch of this jam in the canner now. It was an easy recipe to make. I did cook the rhubarb on it's own so that it was very soft. I have grand kids that love my strawberry jam, but don't know that rhubarb is in the jam. They are very picky eaters I got 6 half pints and 2 4 oz jars. This recipe is a keeper."

"This was the best jam I've ever made. I used fresh strawberries and rhubarb. The recipe was quick and easy. The jam set up very quickly. I will be making this again."
