Strawberries and rhubarb are the long-awaited first sign of spring fruit. Because both are low in pectin, this recipe adds the peel and the flesh of oranges to give this bright-flavored, tangy jam the body it needs. Set it out with cream scones, biscuits or crusty bread.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oranges, preferably blood oranges
  • 1 1/2 to 2 lb. rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch chunks (about 6 cups)
  • 3 cups strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

Directions:

Cut the ends off each orange. Cut the oranges in half crosswise and remove the seeds. Place the orange halves in a food processor and process until roughly pureed. Transfer to a nonreactive bowl. Add the rhubarb, strawberries and sugar and toss gently to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or up to overnight.

Have ready 7 hot, sterilized half-pint jars and their lids. Place 2 or 3 small plates in the freezer.

Transfer the rhubarb mixture to a large nonreactive saucepan and add the lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce the heat to medium and cook, uncovered, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. To test if the jam is ready, put 1 tsp. of the jam on a chilled plate and place in the freezer for 2 minutes. The jam is ready if it wrinkles when nudged gently with a finger. If it doesn’t, continue to cook for 1 to 2 minutes more, remove from the heat and test again on a clean chilled plate.

Ladle the hot jam into the jars, leaving 1/4 inch of headspace. Remove any air bubbles and adjust the headspace, if necessary. Wipe the rims clean and seal tightly with the lids.

Process the jars in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes. The sealed jars can be stored in a cool, dark place for up to 1 year. If a seal has failed, store the jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Makes 7 half-pint jars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Jam Recipe Easy to make, great tasting jam. Love the orange flavor! It reminds me of a strawberry rhubarb pie! Make sure to take into account the step for the overnight blending/mellowing of the fruit flavors prior to cooking the jam. It makes a bit more than the 7 half-pint jars, so sterilize an extra jar!
