Rhubarb and Ginger Jam

Today I made some rhubarb and ginger jam. It's cooling at the moment. As my better half doesn't like ginger we're currently looking for a rhubarb and orange recipe.

  • 1Kg diced rhubarb
  • 1Kg sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 125g crystallised ginger

Soak the diced rhubarb, in sugar and lemon juice over night. Tip the rhubarb mixture into a jam pan, and bring to the boil. Once it's soft, add finely chopped ginger, continue to boil until it reaches the jamming point and pot. Makes 5x370g pots.

Holiday On Wheels

My week off work has gone rather well. I've done 18km per day on the bike, today was a different route, but I stormed up the final hill in a much higher gear than the first day. In the scheme of things my bike rides haven't been long, but just 18km does produce a difference.
