Strawberry Rhubarb Jam at PrairieSide Suites Bed & Breakfast

Our Strawberry Rhubarb Jam is great when spread on toast with cream cheese.

Guests at PrairieSide Suites, Luxury Bed and Breakfast, love this jam.  I make lot’s every spring and pop it into the freezer so it can be enjoyed all year.  I have had guests call to make their reservation and ask me if I still have any of this homemade jam left in the freezer because they were looking forward to it.  My favorite way to serve this jam is with a wonderful thick slice of toast, then I add a layer of cream cheese and top it with this jam.  We often have guests that are diabetic or those who want to keep their sugar intake low, so I always make it with the sugar free Jell-O and Splenda, it’s delicious.
