Apple And Rhubarb Jam

 
Apple 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!

“I have more and more guests who are gluten-intolerant, and I make this for them for breakfast. Neither buckwheat flour nor ground almonds contain gluten, and they do make the mixture more crumbly, so it is best served in a shallow dish. This is a delicious alternative to diet bread!” (Sylviane Tatin)

If you can get hold of a shoulder of wild boar this is an easy recipe to prepare, and you can add mushrooms, berries or fruit if you wish.
