Strawberry Rhubarb Jalapeno Spread


 Strawberry Rhubarb Jalapeno Spread


Take 22 sticks of Rhubarb from the farm
2 large baskets of strawberries
4 cups sugar
1/4 cup of lemon juice (No seeds) some of the rind chopped
1/4 cup fresh chopped jalapenos (or dried)


Grind the jalapenos up if you want to
Chop your Rhubarb into small pieces. Add your rhubard to the pot with enough water to cover and simmer for 30 minutes this will soften your rhubarb.

While that is simmering chop your strawberries
Measure out your sugar. It is better to have everything ready to mix.


















 Put your fruit into a large pot with the lemon juice and rind.
Add th echopped/ground jalapenos to the pot.






After the half hour add 4 cups of sugar continue with a rapid boil for another half hour. Once it is to gel pour pour into jars and water bath your jars for 15 minutes.....

 

This is good with Cream cheese or any cheese and crackers....oh yeah do not forget the wine
