Well, it’s been a while since we last posted. Our rhubarb (you either love it or hate it) is growing nicely and inspired us to try out some different rhubarb recipes.
The was the first recipe we tried, it smells absolutely gorgeous while its boiling away, a bit like rhubarb and custard, and it’s also delicious with a suttle hint of vanilla. We used a recipe from the BBC Good Food website, so simple to follow.

Rhubarb and Rose Tea Jam
This is our own recipe but we used a fantastic recipe from the Morsels and Musings blog for ‘Earl Grey and Rhubarb Jam’ to inspire us. We just substituted Earl Grey Tea for Rose Tea which we were able to find in Tesco. Our first attempt didn’t have a really strong rose flavour so we’ll add more next time.
Rhubarb, Strawberry and Strawberry Cider Jam
We’re partial to the odd fruit cider and we were wondering if you could combine it with fruit to make jam, so off to Google we went and we found a great recipe for ‘Raspberry, Rhubarb and Fruit Cider Jam’ on the Betty Made This blog. Instead of raspberries we used strawberries and combined it with a strawberry cider. It smelt like heaven whilst it was cooking. It is a very sweet jam so we think next time we will use an elderflower cider. Watch this space.
It’s been a lot of fun playing in the kitchen and experimenting with different flavours. Next time we may try a Rhubarb and Gin Jam! If there is a jam you would like to see made, why not contact us and we will see if we can make it up for you.
Jam Week (Jam Jamboree) will be taking place from the 18th June to 24th June 2012, it’s a celebration of all things jammy. Why not visit the Jam Week website to find out more.
Lots of Love,
Love Spreading. xxx
