Rhubarb Marmalade

"My daughter makes this marmalade every spring when rhubarb's abundant. Our family enjoys her gift...a refreshing departure in flavor from all the 'berry' jams and jellies."

  1. Combine rhubarb and sugar in a large heavy saucepan. Grind oranges, including the peels, in a food processor; add to rhubarb mixture. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring often until marmalade sheets from a spoon, about 1 hour.
  2. Pour into hot jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Adjust caps. Process in a boiling-water bath for 10 minutes.


  • If using frozen rhubarb, measure rhubarb while still frozen, then thaw completely. Drain in a colander, but do not press liquid out.

Made this today. I used 4 cups of sugar since we don't like really sweet marmalade. It is delicious!

I thought this was excellent! Wonderful flavor! Took WAY longer than an hour, though. I lowered the sugar by nearly a cup, but cooked it forever. All the jars have been eaten!

After I had this project underway, I realized that the size I had chosen to "chop" my rhubarb may have been wrong... it would be really helpful if that was made more specific in the instructions...

This was my first time canning....like....ever. I read Canning and Preserving for Dummies before attempting this, just to be a little prepared. Really foolproof, even for my first attempt. And f...

not big on jam but this marmalade is awesome...it won't be lasting long and 4 cups of sugar is perfect

This is so delicious!!! Very yummy, a little bit sweet. Wish I had cut back on the sugar, but I didn't want to ruin the recipe. Cooked for a little over 2 hrs to get the consistency I wanted. ...
