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
