2004 contest to find 'the most beautiful German word'. Whatever language it is in, rhubarb is my favourite jam. Even better if it's rhubarb and ginger.
Yesterday I picked half a kilo of rhubarb from our little apple crate veggie garden; today it's jam. It tasted pretty good, now I'm just hoping it sets better than my last attempt at making jam some years ago in Sydney. I haven't made any since, preferring instead to buy what I know is good, like the lovely jams made by locals Maggy and Chris and sold at the monthly Growers and Makers Market in Franklin. My favourite of their jams is the apricot and brandy, with the gooseberry and elderflower a very close second... or is that the raspberry, or the plum or the grapefruit marmelade? All delicious.
