DIRECTIONS

  • Halve & squeeze juice from orange into a large Dutch oven; cut rind into wedges & add to pot.
  • Add rhubarb & water and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally; reduce heat, cover and simmer until rhubarb is tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Mash any chunks with a potato masher or immersion blender.
  • Wet & wring out jelly bag and suspend over large measuring cup or bowl; fill with rhubarb mixture and let drip, without squeezing the bag, until the juice measures 2 cups, about 2 hours.
  • If you don’t end up with 2 cups of liquid, top up with orange juice or orange liqueur.
  • Mix pectin crystals with ¼ cup of sugar and stir into the rhubarb liquid in a large, clean Dutch oven or preserving pot.
  • Bring to a full rolling boil over high heat, add the remaining sugar & return to a full boil, stirring with a wooden spoon; boil hard, stirring, for a minute.
  • Remove from heat, skim off any foam with a large metal spoon and fill hot 1 cup (250ml) canning jars, leaving ¼ inch head space.
  • Remove any air bubbles, wipe rims & cover with prepared lids; screw on bands until resistance is met, then increase to fingertip tight.
  • Boil in boiling water canner for 10 minutes.
