Strawberry, Rhubarb, Masala Spice Jam. [Aug. 31st, 2010|11:38 am]
Happy For Jesus
Oh, and I made the most amazing jam the other day. Really beautiful red, ripe strawberries were $1 a pound at El Mariachi. I bought three, which was roughly six pints. Washed them, cut them, pulsed them for a sec in the food processor. Then I cooked a small bag of frozen rhubarb in water to defrost, added that to the food processor and pulsed for a sec. I followed the strawberry jam recipe in the box of surejell pectin for low sugar recipes, but added two tablespoons of lemon juice, a tablespoon of ground cardomom, a teaspoon of ground ginger and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Holy shit! It is the best jam I have ever had. Ever.

sounds delicious and do-able! I have failed on jam making this year, save for the peach preserves I helped with in Georgia- I'm glad you're making the best of berry season.

I don't have a canning set-up so I just put it in the canning jars and eat it by three weeks.

stored in a cool dark place, so long as it's sealed, will increase the longevity....but i'm sure you already knew that. i've also found that my jam last way longer than 3 weeks you just got to be mindful before you serve it up.

Reading this was such a great help. Anti aging skin products is such a complicated thing and this article explained it well. Many thanks to this new information.

I realise this is an old post and all, but damn that sounds like good jam.
