 clap:-) Thanks Snuzz - sounds like a nice easy one that - even a cack handed chef like me could handle that one!

Rhubarb and Ginger Jam

Makes 3 Jars

Ingredients:

500g rhubarb, 2cm chunks

500g jam sugar

zest & juice of 1 lemon

thumb sized piece of root ginger

50g stem ginger, finely cubed

Method:

Tip the rhubarb pieces into a large bowl, along with the sugar, lemon juice, zest and cubed stem ginger.

Peel the root ginger and grate it over the rhubarb before mixing thoroughly and leaving to sit for 2 hours, turning with a spoon every 30 minutes.

Once most of the sugar has dissolved, tip the contents of the mixing bowl into a large sauce pan and bring to a brisk boil.

Turn the heat down and simmer for 40-50 minutes, until the rhubarb has broken down. Pop a couple of small plates in the freezer.

After 40 minutes take a small amount of the jam and place it on one of the chilled plates. Once a minute has passed push the cool jam with your finger. If the surface of the jam wrinkles itís ready. If not, give it a few minutes more and try again.

When ready, transfer the jam into three sterilised jars, seal and leave to cool. Once open, store the jam in the fridge, where itíll last for many months.

Sounds gorgeous!  We are off to the children's allotments on Thursday.  They always have bundles of Rhubarb recently for 50p. I might give the jam a go!  ThU:-)

THAT is my favourite jam Snuzz! After 'bramble jelly'.

It will go in the 'Josie's Recipes' page on the AVAS web-site. Probably over the winter months - I promised I'd do it last winter but never finished it. I hope to get it done this autumn/ winter though. So keep those recipes coming in!  ThU:-)
