Rhubarb and Orange Jam



The extra rhubarb I picked yesterday became jam today. 

I don't like Jam so it isn't something that I make very often.
 
I made this just for Moe.  
I ended up with 6 half pints plus an extra half pint which wasn't processed.   

3 pounds of rhubarb
4 1/2 cups of sugar
zest of one orange
Juice of same orange
juice of one lemon plus enough water to make one cup
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract

Simmered all the  ingredients until the rhubarb thickened and set up.  Spooned into prepared canning jars and then processed in a water bath for 10 minutes.

  3. Ann, I've always known of your disdain for jellies and jams, and even though I'm not big on sweet jams either, I'd be tempted to dip a spoon into one of these lovely jars.
