Rhubarb continued…

Now ain’t that a pretty sight? Fourteen jars of rhubarb almost ready for the preserver, just need to have their clips put in place. So colourful.
Of course I know the rhubarb could have been stacked in the jars more neatly (I used to be more fastidious about that in the past), but it’s all the same in the end really.
Plus that fussy stacking with little batons takes quite a bit of time and effort for very little gain, none as far as flavour is concerned.
A couple of hours in the preserver and they will be ready for the pantry shelves, always ready at hand to include in any rhubarb dish over the coming months.

      It must be brought up to temperature slowly to ensure that the heat permeates right onto the centre of the jar Roscoe. At this slightly lower temperature more nutrients are preserved. You can alternatively, preserve at a slightly higher temperature – 90 to 92 degrees for a shorter time. I prepared a chart for that should you want it. I can email it to you if you like.
