Rhubarb Orange Jam. We don’t have a very long rhubarb season in Arizona so I grab when I see it. This means I don’t always have a plan for it when I get it home! I had some oranges and I always have orange liqueur so I thought a jam would be perfect! This sweet tart jam is bursting with flavor. The addition of honey deepens the flavor and makes it the perfect topping for toast, waffles, crepes or pancakes. I used it in a bar cookie recipe so the sky is the limit. It keeps in the fridge for a couple of weeks but I bet it doesn’t last that long!
