About a month ago Jade Louise Designs posted this stunning photo and recipe for Raspberry Rhubarb Jam. Sounded absolutely delicious, and since I had a huge bush of rhubarb growing in my backyard I knew I had to try it out. I made a couple alterations though using some of my freeze dried raspberries. Since I was missing the juice I would have had from fresh berries, I added a little cranberry juice in as well.

Raspberry Rhubarb Jam
adapted from Jade Louise Designs
4 cups freeze dried Raspberries
4 cups rhubarb, chopped
1/2 cup 100% Cranberry Juice
5 TBS Pectin
1 tsp butter
2 TBS Lemon Juice
4 1/2 cups Sugar
Prep jars for canning.
In a large saucepan combine all the ingredients minus the sugar. Heat it to a boil, while constantly stirring. Add the sugar, and return to a boil. Boil for 1 minute, and remove from heat. 
Pour the jam into prepared jars, add lids and process for 30 minutes.  Let cool. Make sure the jars have sealed. If not keep in the fridge, and use within a month. 

It’s back to school time and I NEED ideas for my kids lunch, and I’m sure some of you could use some too. Last week we had two posts shared with school lunch ideas to mix it up a little and make lunch fun. Don’t forget notes reminding them to have a great day!
Now with the kids back in school I can enjoy a little more fancy lunch for myself again, instead of pb&j’s or mac and cheese. These hit the spot for me!
I love Salmon, but have a hard time getting the kids and Mark to eat it. If I start young with Prince L and Princess R with a favorite like Mac and Cheese, I might win some of them over yet!
I’m not a big Watermelon fan, but this sounds amazing, and refreshing, with more of a sweet taste than tangy.  I can already picture sitting on the patio sipping this while the kids playing quietly at my feet.  Hey I can dream!

  1. Hi Adelina! Thank You so much for the feature! what you said it's so true…Mac and Cheese is the best way to sneak what we want in our little ones…and sometimes not so little, members of the family! Have a fantastic weekend! So happy you liked this recipe!

  2. I love your jam… are you going to make pies too? Great features. My kids don't let me pack lunches for them any more. Not cool in Middle School. Lunch is pretty inexpensive anyway, but I miss putting notes in lunch boxes.

  3. Wow, I love how the both the feaured jam and the watermelon look— so tempting! Glad to join this link up, bringing along my Zucchini Bread Cups. Thank you, Adelina and Diane! :))
