The most beautiful organic rhubarb was on sale at Flemington Markets last week for just $2.50/bunch!  We bought two…

…and Pete combined them with a kilo of frozen blackberries to make seven jars of fabulous jam.  Here are some brief instructions…

  • 1kg rhubarb, cut into pieces
  • 1kg frozen or fresh blackberries
  • 2 x 300ml jars homemade pectin
  • 1kg white sugar
  • 100ml lime juice

1. Place the rhubarb, lime juice and pectin in a large stock pot and bring to a boil, then simmer gently until the fruit is pulpy.

2. Add the blackberries and sugar and bring to a rolling boil until the jam sets and wrinkles when tested on a cold plate.

3. Spoon the hot jam into sterilised jars, seal tightly, then boil the jars for 10 minutes in a hot water bath.

Please see our Jam Making Primer for more tips on making jam.

My breakfast this morning…Pete’s homemade Greek yoghurt, swirled through with a couple of spoonfuls of rhubarb and blackberry jam!
