      I cooked my jam for about 50 minutes, and so it cooked down to yield only 3 half-pint jars. It seems softer than most jams I've made, but it probably doesn't matter since I am using this mainly as a sweet & sour type sauce for veggies (had this for lunch today and it was yummy when mixed with soy sauce and chili-garlic sauce!). This has a complex sweet/sour/spicy flavor that would work well with so many things. I look forward to using it on grilled shrimp and chicken, too. Thank you for posting.

      This is wonderful! I gave a couple jars away and everyone who tried it raved about the versatility of this jam. I tried it on toast and on a ham sandwich and both ways it was wonderful. One person who tried it thought it would be great on grilled chicken or even as part of a marinade for grilling meat. I also think it would be great an ingredient for a refreshing salad dressing. I think it would also do very well spread between layers of a cake with buttercream frosting. I will definitely be making this many times again. I may try using fresh ginger just to see the results. Thanks for sharing!

      This recipe is wonderful! I used 1/4 t of Asian chili pepper sauce for the hot sauce. My sister has a large rhubarb plant that grows like a weed (they usually mow it down with the lawn mower, but I had her go around it for a couple weeks), so I decided to give it a go. I really love the ginger and the jam is sweet enough so I think next time I will use fresh ginger instead of the candied. It set up to jam stage for me 15 min after boiling. Also, I processed in a boiling water canner for 20 min (10 + 10 for high altitude). I got 4 8 oz jars plus a little.
