Experimental Jam…Take 1

I cook alot of “experimental” dishes. I combine a couple of recipes, the ingredients I have on hand (or that Dan will EAT) and come up with something.
I tried it today with Jam. I wanted to recreate Stonewall Kitchen’s Rhubarb Strawberry Apple Jam. (It isn’t available right now, apparently)

Frozen Fruit

I used frozen strawberries picked a few weeks earlier, frozen rhubarb picked a few weeks earlier, and an Granny Smith Apple picked GawdKnowsWhen.

2CupsFruit

I used 2+ cups each of Rhubarb & Strawberries, and 1 shredded apple.

In pan

I used about 1 1/2 cups sugar. The fruit was frozen.

Adding Pectin

I added some Apple Pectin that I had made the night before.

There's my Weck Jars in the Water Bath!

All done...waiting for it to "set"

Truth is, It probably isn't going to set. It is a delicious sauce, though!

2+ Cups Rhubarb
1 Granny Smith Apple, shredded
1 1/2 Cups Sugar

    I am loving your jars, where do you get them and are they just as good as regular ball heatpack jars?

    They are WECK canning jars, from Germany. You can buy them at a variety of places, but I got these at Heath Ceramics. I’m still new to them……Still learning.
