Appel And Rhubarb Jam

 
Appel and rhubarb jam

We have an orchard with many apple trees and a small kitchen garden with vegetables, including rhubarb. I have found various ways of using up the apples that don’t look presentable enough for the fruit bowl. We serve this jam to our guests as a treat at breakfast time and they love it!
