Gingered Rhubarb and Three Berry Jam

I love making homemade jam! It screams summer. My girls swimming for hours in the HOT Florida sun, playing outside and filling their tiny bellies with PB&J and Kool-Aid!!! Oh Joy. Because of this, I keep my cabinets stocked with homemade Strawberry, Peach and other Jams.

I am just a sucker for these two and I love seeing their smiles. My homemade jam does the job well :)

I had a bunch of berries and rhubarb leftover from the Bumbleberry Pie which worked excellent in this jam with a touch of ginger and lemon. YUM! It is one of my new favorites . It is rated up there with the Peach Cinnamon Jam (I could devour the entire contents of the jar.)


2 TB of Minced Ginger
1/2 Lemon Juiced
3 cps. Rhubarb, sliced thin
1 1/2 cp. Blackberries
1 1/2 cp. Blueberries
1 1/2 cp. Strawberries, sliced thin
4 cps. Sugar
1 box of Sure-Jell

1. Bring the Ginger, Juice, Rhubarb, Blackberries, Blueberries, Strawberries and Sugar to a boil.
2. While boiling add the Sure-Jell and let boil one minute. Remove and add to the sanitized jars

If you do not know how to sanitize jars and add the jam to the jars use this



  1. I really want to make my own jam this summer. Yours sounds delicious! Where did you get all the rhubarb? I have a hard time finding it here in Florida!

  2. Rhubarb and ginger is one of my favourite flavour combinations (including in jam), and I really like the idea of adding in some berries to the mix. This one's definitely going in the must-try pile!

  3. The ginger is a nice addition to the jam, which is already full of my favorite flavors!

  4. Home made jam! Yum! It is the best!
    Love your exciting flavours!

  5. Miranda..I have always wondered how this will taste like. You have made a wonderful jam which I am sure has great flavors...ginger and rhubarb ! Exotic! Thanks for sharing :)

  6. I've always wanted to make some jam! This sounds great esp with the ginger!

  7. I absolutely must make this for my family! We love rhubarb and it sounds wonderful together with ginger and berries!

  8. Sounds good Miranda!
