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.
