Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

I bought strawberries to make my annual strawberry-rhubarb jam. It turned out that my own strawberry plants produced almost enough berries for the batch,

Almost enough for my jam without buying any, but did have to buy some.

just needed to add a small amount of the less flavorful store-bought ones.

The jam is good, but still a little runny – can’t seem to get it just right these days. They are gelled at the top and liquid at the bottom. I find that when I open a new jar, if I stir it up it seems to thicken a little bit more in the fridge.

 The strawberry bed really needs to be revamped. I probably won’t use the 4×8 raised bed this time so I will have to come up with a new plan. Stay tuned.

And the rhubarb that has been moved is still very weak compared to at it’s old home. Taking a few years so far to get re-established.
