[Last minute] Rhubarb and raspberry jam for Easter

Hello my zebras!

Are you more #TeamTidy or #TeamChaos ? I definitely belong to the latter category and am therefore always a bit late with everything I do. Especially with presents. What? Easter? Oh, is it that time already? This comes as a surprise!

The good thing about that is that I have become a master in the art of coming up with last-minute presents. So if you are still looking for some ideas, I’m here to help. And this super fruity rhubarb and raspberry jam is really worth a try ❤ Here’s the recipe!

Rhubarb and raspberry jam

makes 5 small jars (à 300 ml)

  • 750 g rhubarb, cleaned
  • 150 g raspberries
  • 450 g gelling sugar (1:2)

Cut the rhubarb into small pieces and place in a large pot together with the raspberries. Mix with the gelling sugar and let stand for 1-2 hours.

Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and thoroughly purée with a blender. Strain through a fine sieve to remove the raspberry seeds. Pour the hot jam into clean jars and close tightly.

The decoration is actually also quite easy to do: you only need white air drying modeling clay, hot glue and spray paint.

Use the modeling clay to form small bunnies and let them dry (preferably overnight). Then glue the dry bunnies to the lids of the jam jars and add an even coat of spray paint. Alternatively, you can paint the bunny and the lid with acrylic paint and a brush –  I imagine it would look lovely in pastel shades!
