Rhubarb and ginger jam

The classic jam. For each kilo of rhubarb, I use 50 grams of chopped crystalised ginger. You can also used powdered ginger, and adjust according to taste. If you love ginger, double the amount. 


  • 1kg chopped rhubarb stems
  • 50g chopped crystalised ginger or 1 teaspoon of powdered ginger
  • 1kg sugar
  • juice of two small lemons


  • Chop the rhubarb and the ginger into the jam pan, and cover with the sugar. Leave overnight.
  • The next day, bring to the boil and then add the lemon juice. Simmer for around 20 minutes, until thick. 
  • Pour into warmed jars.
