Allotments and Redcurrant and Rhubarb Jam

on June 25, 2015

The allotment is finally coming in to itself; gone are the days of wondering why on earth (pardon the pun) I have the thing when I see how many weeds there are; here are the days of plenty – and currants-and-rhubarbslow growing weeds.

This week so far we have harvested 2lbs cherries, 1lb blackcurrants and 1.5lbs redcurrants – and they’ve not even got going fully yet.  I also was able to pick a bag full of Swiss Chard and Spinach.

So, yesterday I cooked up the first batch of Redcurrant and Rhubarb Jam.  I used the same recipe as Blackcurrant and Rhubarb Jam and substituted red for black currants.

Just seen an amazing recipe that would use this jam….. Rhubarb and Red Currant Jam Swirled Bread.  Can’t wait to give it a try!!
