Another Hay Day

Another really hot day to bale hay.  I heard someone say it hit 90, which around here is a "once every couple of summers" kinda thing.  This is Jonathan J.(with the hat), my nephew Jeshua(with the bandana), and Nathan(in the camos), Rebekah's little brother.  Altogether the crew put 1,355 bales in the haymow.  Good job guys!
What is it?  Well, a lady at church shared her rhubarb orange candy jam recipe.  It sounded kinda strange but Miriam tried it out today since we happened to have everything for it and it really is quite good.  The picture doesn't really do it justice as it's more orangy in color.  Here's the recipe:

6 Cups rhubarb cut in slices
2 1/2 Cups sugar
Mix and let sit for two hours.
Add: 1/2 -1 lb. candy orange slices cut in little pieces.
Bring to a boil for about 15 minutes.
Add: One box apricot jello.
Boil one more minute and put in jars.
Miriam waterbathed the jars for about 10 minutes and got five small jars.

  1. I love the idea of a jam recipe. It sounds good. I always need more rhubarb recipes. I have tons of it and no one here likes it but me! I let it grow because it looks so lush and healthy and adds to the overall look of my garden! Thanks!


We'd love to hear what you have to say!
