Strawberry & Rhubarb Jam – Simply Stupendous!

Strawberry and Rhubarb JamThis is my favourite jam so far! Based on my previous post on Rhubarb Jam, this jam is an ideal combination of sweetness from the strawberries and tang from the rhubarb.  An absolute joy to eat!

I attribute my avoidance of strawberry jam to eating way too many peanut butter and jelly (strawberry during my younger years) sandwiches.  Whatever the underlying cause might be, the use of strawberry here serves to add to and develop the lovely rhubarb flavours which I so enjoyed through my initial ‘jamming’ experience.

For having only a fledgling understanding of rhubarb, my love for this strange plant is growing by the day with each slice of toast spread with this delightful jam.
