Have this jam on my Cherry Scones and you’ll be in heaven.
3 1/2 Pounds Rhubarb
1 Pound Peaches
Juice of 3 Lemons
3 Pounds Sugar
2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Ginger
Wipe and trim the rhubarb. Trim the stalks. Halve them lengthwise and cut crosswise into 1/2 inch pieces. Wash and slice the peaches. In a large bowl, combine the rhubarb, peaches, sugar, lemon juice and ginger. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. The next day, put the contents of the bowl into a cooking pot and bring to a boil. Cooking time will vary depending on how much juice the rhubarb releases. Boil rapidly for 30 minutes. Once the rhubarb breaks down turn the heat down to a simmer for 40 more minutes. Keep a close eye on the mixture as it simmers. Remove from the heat and skim any foam off the surface. Cool completely and refrigerate up to 2 weeks or can the jam for longer storage. Makes about 5 pints.
