I got this off the net a long time ago. Source: The rhubarb Compendium. It’s very good--I make it every year.

My picky eater of a son LOVES this! I put it on a pbj sandwich and waited for him to complain...he ate it faster than I have ever seen him eat a sandwich before! We will definately be making this again!! Thank you so much for the recipe!

This is a delicious jam, with nice zip from the ginger and citrus zest. I did have to cook it substantially longer than the recipe stated, about 40 minutes, but that may be related to the altitude here.

This is absolutely the best rhubarb marmalade recipes ever! I have made it several times, it is quick and easy and even those folks who don't really like rhubard that well have told me they love it!
