So, I don't know if you guys have noticed, but store-bought jelly and jam is loaded with sugar. I mean LOADED. It's next to impossible to find one that doesn't have sugar listed as the main ingredient.
As I was perusing the organic isle one day, I came across this homemade looking (but obviously store-bought) strawberry rhubarb jam. I was like "Wow Angel, that looks f***ing delicious." So I bought it. And it was f***ing delicious. But what I didn't mention was that it was over $8.00 for like 2 cups of jam. Um, what?
So obviously, I decided to make my own. And I am SO glad I did. This came out even better, had less sugar, and was seriously SO EASY to make!
-2 pounds sliced strawberries
-2 pounds sliced rhubarb
-1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
-1/2 cup water
-1 tsp lemon juice
Slice up strawberries & rhubarb.
Cook strawberries with 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar, and 1/2 tsp lemon juice on medium heat until boiling. Reduce heat to low and cook 20-30 minutes.
Once strawberries are done, repeat step 2 with rhubarb.
Combine strawberries and rhubarb.
Cook on low for an additional 10-20 minutes.
Enjoy all the jam your heart and belly can bare!
Seriously, I'm not going to lie, this recipe makes A LOT. So you can halve it...but this is how much I used, and I ended up with A LOT of heavenly jam! Enjoy :)
