- 6 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb
- 6 cups sugar
- 2 medium oranges
- Combine rhubarb and sugar in a Dutch oven. Grind oranges, including the peels, in a food processor; add to rhubarb mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring often until marmalade sheets from a spoon, about 1 hour.
- Remove from heat; skim off foam. Ladle hot mixture into eight hot half-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.
- Place jars into canner with simmering water, ensuring that they are completely covered with water. Bring to a boil; process for 10 minutes. Remove jars and cool. Yield: about 8 half-pints.
Reviews for Rhubarb Marmalade
"bennzz61 processing the jars makes the marmalade shelf stable. You can skip that step ONLY if you store the finished jam in the refrigerator or freezer.Sue StetzelField Editor ManagerTaste of Home Magazine"
"This might be a silly question but can this be made without doing the step where the jars are boiled in the water? Can I make this and just give it to friends and tell them it can't be stored for a long period of time? Does the boiling do anything more other than preserve the jars?"
"If you like it less sweet, i omit the orange and use a pkg of raspberry jello, (can use sugar free) and 2 cups of sugar. mix all together let set overnight in ref. boil until rhubarb is done and freeze."
"I made this last week and it was fabulous!!! I only used one orange, as per other reviewers and 5 cups of sugar. I also cooked it in the slow cooker for about 4 hours on high. It jelled perfectly. I gave some to my walking partner and she is going to make it too. Thanks for the recipe."
"Excellent recipe and very easy to make. Everyone that has had it loves it"
