Rhubarb + Ginger = OMGosh Jam! A best friend to toast, this rhubarb recipe is also a good oatmeal topper, mixed with yogurt or served with cheese.

Rhubarb

I started with some rhubarb from the garden.

I love to say that because I’m not a great gardener. But I do have some fruits (pun intended) of my labor. Good thing rhubarb is such a self sufficient plant. It returns year after year and doesn’t require much attention.

Rhubarb Ginger Jam was a breakfast highlight on a trip to Ireland. The owner of the B&B didn’t think it was anything special, but I sure did. I still laugh at her response when I asked her about it. Apparently, the recipe is so common, she just shrugged me off and gave me a look. But I knew this was one recipe I would recreate.

This is a versatile rhubarb recipe. Chop the rhubarb into similar size pieces so they cook evenly. If you want Strawberry Rhubarb Jam, use 4 cups rhubarb and 3 cups strawberries. Both versions are pretty darn good!

Cook it until the fruit breaks down and mixture thickens.
