Rhubarb Butter

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by farmchick 2

Inexpensive, and yummy. This was a staple at our house growing up to put on toast, and cakes. Mom also sometimes put it on chicken. It's not really sweet, more tart. I'm surprised it wasn't already on 'Zaar. Mom used white sugar, but I like the flavor of brown sugar...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the rhubarb into 1" chunks.
  2. Using a blender or a food processor add the water and rhubarb. Blend. This should make about 3 cups of pulp.
  3. Place in a heavy pan. Bring to a boil.
  4. Add sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Cook, stirring all the time until it looks like fruit butter.
  6. If you want add up to 4 drops of food coloring. It will be a beautiful color. Grandma did this, Mom and I never have.
  7. Ladle into hot prepared jars.
  8. Process at once in a hot water bath (212 degrees) for 5 minute.
  9. Remove and place on clean towel.
  10. Cool and wait for that beautiful popping sound.
