Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Jam

This week’s #HandCraftedEdibles is all about the jams and jellies!

This one took a lot of research, because I don’t really eat jams or jellies (I grew up on peanut butter sandwiches, not PB&J).  So, of course, I’d never actually made jam before.

But I’m always up for a challenge!

I decided to take my favorite pie and re-imagine it into jam!

And know what?  It was amazing!!  I think I’m a jam convert!

I absolutely adore the warm spiciness of this jam.  I think it adds the extra pizzazz that I was always missing!

Don't miss the rest of this week's fabulous jams & jellies:

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie Jam
Adapted slightly from Taste of Home

4 cups fresh or frozen strawberries
2 cups red rhubarb
¼ cup lemon juice
1 (1.75 oz) package pectin (Sure-Jell)
1 tsp ground ginger
½ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground cloves
5 cups sugar

Place the strawberries (thawed if using frozen) and rhubarb in the bowl of a food processor and process until crushed.

Place the pureed berries into a large sauce pan.  Stir in the lemon juice and pectin and bring to a rolling boil, stirring frequently.

Add the sugar and spices and return to a boil.  Boil for 1 minute, then remove from heat and skim off any foam. 

Pour the hot jam into clean mason jars.  Top with the lid and flip the jars until the cool and the lids seal.  Alternately, use a canner according to manufacturer instructions.

Makes about 3 ½ pints
