WOW! I love this! I love that it can be made from start to finish in under an hour. I love the full rhubarb flavor not diluted by the orange that is in it or any other fruit that are in so many recipes. My husband wanted a sweet enough jam for his taste, so since I increased the sugar until he thought it was enough (4 cups...and I know, holy cow!) to suit his taste. I also increased the rhubarb by 1/2 cup. Since one orange did not yield enough zest, instead of cutting up another orange I added a small amount (maybe half a handful) of orange bits of pulp in place of the missing 1 teaspoon of zest only for the added orange taste and the pectin. It worked perfectly. I always cook my jam by doing the cold plate test, because after one minute on the cold plate from the freezer you know that is how thick or thin the finished product will be. This way I always know if I should add more water to thin it or cook it longer to thicken it. Great stuff, will make sure I always have this on hand, might be hard since I know my son will surely steal it all when he comes to visit!
