Rhubarb Citrus Marmalade

My mom and dad have been visiting for the last week, its been great having them around. My dad is Mr. Fix-it, so we have been finishing the downstairs bathroom ( it was just a toilet in a room, no sink or lights, etc). It is going to look great when its finished. I will share a photo when its done :)

I have also had access to a point and shoot camera, thanks mom and dad!

When I have my table at the market there are always other vendors that are willing to do trades and I got a big bag of rhubarb! I left it in the fridge for a few days trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it, and I finally decided to make a marmalade with it.  I have little experience with canning, but my mom was here and she encouraged the no pectin. So I went for it. It turned out perfect, not to sweet and with a little tang.

Rhubarb Citrus Marmalade

2 pounds of rhubarb
3 cups organic sugar
1 cup strawberries- sliced
1/2 grapefruit
1/2 orange
1 tbsp ginger

  • In a food processor chop the rhubarb until almost minced. 
  • Place in a large heavy bottom sauce pan along with the sugar and strawberries.
  • Next add grapefruit, orange and ginger into the food processor (peel and all) and whiz until finely minced
  • Add to rhubarb mixture.
  • Bring to a boil and simmer for an hour or until resembles a jam like consistency.


  1. Sounds amazing. I love that you were able to do a trade for the rhubarb. I really like what you've done with it as well. Yummy!

  2. This looks really yummy! I wish I had a rhubarb plant! It's so espensive in stores!
