  • 100ml orange juice

  • 1kg rhubarb (preferably young rhubarb)

  • 1kg jam sugar (must have added pectin otherwise it won't set)

  • 100g crystalline ginger (optional)


  1. Layer the sugar/rhubarb in a pan (with ginger if using), add orange juice.
  2. Leave overnight.
  3. Boil for 5-6 minutes until setting point is reached (but it can take longer than this - see hint on how to tell if setting point has been reached).

Handy Hint

To check for setting, put a saucer in the freezer, then take a teaspoon of the jam from the pan and put on the plate. It should crinkle when pushed if setting point has been reached.
