Rhubarb Preserves Recipe

 By Joe Cowan

Director of Operations

 

Rhubarb has been growing in wonderful abundance in our garden. One of the leaves is almost as big as my computer desk, and the stalks are bright red with a superb tartness. For this recipe, I am using maple syrup and lemon, and I will be freezing it for use later on this fall and winter. The early preservation recipes need to be quick and easy, since most of my time is absorbed by maintaining the garden and optimizing productivity.

 

Rhubarb Preserves

 

Ingredients

 

12-15 large stalks of rhubarb, chopped

2 cups maple syrup

2 lemons, juiced

 

Directions

 

  1. Add all the ingredients and heat on medium in a large, covered stockpot, until the juice at the bottom begins to bubble and lightly boil. Reduce heat to low and continue to cook.
  2. Once the rhubarb is tender and breaks apart, continue to reduce the liquid while stirring continuously. Once the mixture has reduced to a thick mass, do a taste test. If it is the desired sweet/tartness you like, set it aside to cool. If not, add a little more maple sugar or syrup.
  3. Once cooled, scoop into small mason jars up to the collar freeze line, and place in the freezer.
  4. Save some to use in oatmeal, and over pancakes or waffles.

Are you foot-loose and fancy-free when it comes to cooking up a storm in the kitchen? Do you like to create your own masterpieces with tried and tested recipes? If so, you might relish this slightly healthier version of traditional Scotch eggs.

 

Scotch eggs were invented by Fortnum & Mason, an old-fashioned department store established in 1707 in the UK. This surprisingly simple yet delicious recipe has two main ingredients: eggs and pork sausage meat. It makes perfect picnic food, travels well, and can be eaten hot or cold.

Being in the garden is healing. Digging in the soil with bare hands and feet while soaking up the sunshine. Fresh water washing the toes via the hose. Where bees are buzzing, hummingbirds fluttering, buds a-blooming and beans are growing.

Many of our gardens are overflowing with more fruits and vegetables than we know what to do with. If you don’t have a garden, your local farmer’s market will be teeming with tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squash, and melons right now. So pick some up, bake some muffins and share a salad with your friends. But be prepared, you’ll most likely get asked to do so again, again and again.
