Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

I made a post about our Strawberry picking a few weeks back, (almost two months ago I guess), and we did a few neat things with the strawberries. First of all they were fresh and delicious as I believe I previously mentioned. We picked close to eight pounds, which was a bit more than I thought was in the container we used to collect them.

I had a few jam recipes in mind prior to heading to the farm. The first was a recipe for Strawberry Rhubarb Jam. Now Rhubarb is another one of these weird things that I never ate. They used to serve a rhubarb crisp or something for desert up at Lake Shore Farm (our summer vacation spot in New Hampshire that is now only a memory), I never ate it because, hey rhubarb is weird and gross. Well, it's weird but not gross I just recently learned. My best way to describe it was Granny Smith Apple crossed with Celery... a strange consistency, but nice smelling and very tasty.

So I picked up some rhubarb at the farm after out strawberry picking, and made this recipe. It turned out pretty good. I have plenty left over, if anyone wants a jar let me know.

I guess I need to figure a way to reduce the foam
