Rhubarb and Vanilla Jam

Late last year my Dad got himself an allotment. I thought this was great being able to grow fruit and veg and when they’re fresh from the garden even better. Our first home grown vegetable given to us was rhubarb. The first thing that came to mind was to cook was a crumble but then I had this idea of rhubarb jam. I love the rhubarb and custard sweets and thought a great way to give jam flavour was to sweeten it with vanilla pods, giving it the custard taste.

The day after we made it we had it on toast and it tasted divine! It wasn’t the thickest of jams but the consistency was nice. It was a great hit with the family and I would definitely make some more.

Instructions
  1. Chop all the rhubarb up into one inch pieces and wash. Put it into a large saucepan along with the sugar, pectin and two seeded vanilla pods.
  2. Heat gently and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Squeeze in the whole lemon and increase the heat.
  3. Boil for 10 minutes, skimming off any scum as you go. The rhubarb should be soft.
  4. Once the jam is ready let it cool for about 15 minutes. Ladle the jam into warm sterilised jars and seal. Once opened keep in the fridge for up to 6 months.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
