Today I got some of this:
Tonight I chopped it all up, added some sugar, and tomorrow I'll mix it up with this:
And hopefully tomorrow I will have some very yummy rhubarb jam, from a recipe I spotted over at The Ink Spot.
I can NOT wait to taste it.
The very best part of it all - the rhubarb came from a neighbor of granny, who gave me permission to take as much as I wanted as long as I promised to share jam with her. I will admit, that I had hoped the amount of rhubarb I picked would have yielded more than 4 cups of rhubarb, but oh well! Next time I go to granny's I will have to pick some more rhubarb from them (and when I was talking about it today, I was told there might be another source of rhubarb for me to get)! Yummy ... too bad I need to leave it in the fridge overnight, I am really ready to make it now LOL!
PS - anyone here stop baking/cooking with white sugar? The more I read, the more I think I should not use it. But what in the world do I replace it with? And has anyone done it and not regretted it? Thanks!
