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.
