Easy Homemade Rhubarb Jam

There is something so special about eating your own homemade condiments.

Making jam at home allows you to monitor how much sugar is going into your jam and avoid any stabilizers or preservatives that store bought jams may have. And its super easy and makes your house smell amazing in the process too!

I want to share with you a jam that we make at home while Rhubarb stalks are available at the Farmers Markets and on Supermarket shelves during late spring.
