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!

We thought it would work with our trout at “Le Vieux Mouline” and so we asked our chef to make us a version of this dish when we got home... It’s nice to be able to try a fish tartare that is not the Red Tuna Tartare that you see everywhere... And, what is more, it uses a really local product !
