Rhubarb Raisin Marmalade Recipe

Rhubarb Raisin Marmalade Recipe

At a retreat in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, I sampled a marmalade combining rhubarb and raisins. I loved it so much that I went home and tried to duplicate it. I added the strawberries to make the marmalade even sweeter.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Process: 10 min. YIELD:32 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 medium oranges
  • 1 medium lemon
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 6 cups diced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup raisins

Directions

  • 1. Finely grate orange and lemon peels; squeeze and reserve juices. In a Dutch oven, combine the peels, juices, sugar, rhubarb, strawberries and salt. Cook and stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved; add raisins. Bring to a full rolling boil; cook over medium heat until thick, about 5 minutes.
  • 2. Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Remove air bubbles; wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 10 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield: 4 pints.
Editor's Note: The processing time listed is for altitudes of 1,000 feet or less. Add 1 minute to the processing time for each 1,000 feet of additional altitude.
