Rhubarb & Ginger Jam
Ginger makes a lovely combination with rhubarb, an edible plant stalk. Jam Packed use outdoor grown rhubarb that is available from June onwards and has a better flavour than the delicate early forced rhubarb. Why not add a warmed dollop to some vanilla ice cream!
All of Jam Packed jams are extra jams, having more fruit than your typical supermarket brands. An extra jam has to have a minimum of 45g fruit per 100g product and must be made from whole fruit. The jams are made seasonally from using only hand-picked, locally sourced ingredients wherever possible.
Storage: Jams have a best before date one year from the date of production and will be fine kept in a cupboard, larder or other cool, dark, dry place for many months; once opened they should be refrigerated and used within 3-4 weeks.
Ingredients: Rhubarb, sugar, ground ginger (sulphites), lemon juice, pectin (from apples)
Jam Packed Preserves is a family run business. They make an extensive range of artisan, award-winning extra jams, jellies, marmalades, chutneys and curds. All preserves are lovingly hand-stir in small batches in open pans. The story began in 2006. From an allotment that had a large stand of autumn raspberries that produced a glut of fruit. Wanting to avoid food waste Sue telephoned her Mum and asked how to make jam. The rest is history!
