Fresh Biscuits & Strawberry/Rhubarb Jam

The grocery store had strawberries on sale last week, and they looked really good! Purchased to large containers and decided that Luke & I would make some jam on Friday.
We made Strawberry-Rhubarb Jam and also a Rhubarb Freezer Jam. They are both amazing!!
Of course Luke asked for biscuits for Saturday's breakfast so he could try the new jam :)


2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup hard margarine
4 tsp. baking powder
1 cup milk

I put the flour, cut up marg. and baking powder into my food processor until it's crumbly. Doesn't take very long. For the milk - sometimes I do 1/2 c milk + 1/2 c. buttermilk or cream. Depends what I have in the fridge.

Pat the "dough" until it's about 1/2 an inch thick and cut into circles with a cup, cookie cutter or whatever you happen to have.

Bake at 425F for about 12 minutes or so.


4 cups fresh strawberries, crushed
2 cups chopped fresh rhubarb
1/4 cup bottled lemon juice
1 package (1-3/4 ounces) powdered fruit pectin
5-1/2 cups sugar

In a Dutch oven, combine the strawberries, rhubarb and lemon juice; stir in pectin. Bring to a full rolling boil, stirring constantly. Stir in sugar; return to a full rolling boil. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.

Remove from the heat; skim off foam. Carefully ladle hot mixture into hot sterilized pint jars, leaving 1/4-in. headspace. Wipe rims and adjust lids. Process for 5 minutes in a boiling-water canner. Yield: about 6 pints.
(I put the jam into containers and froze it.)


5 c. cut up rhubarb
4 c. sugar
Mix and let stand overnight. Heat and boil until rhubarb is done (not very long). Remove from stove and add 1 (3 oz.) box of strawberry Jello (dry). Let cool. Put in small containers in freezer. Tastes like strawberry jam. Delicious as an ice cream topping.


  1. Really yummy biscuits and that jam looks really tasty too! Nothing like a proper handmade breakfast to start a Friday!
