Limited Edition Harbinger Rhubarb Preserve
This product is currently sold out.
Our Harbinger Rhubarb Preserve is made with fresh Yorkshire Rhubarb. One of our favourite preserves, we source all our rhubarb from the Tomlinson Family, who have been growing forced rhubarb continuously for four generations in Pudsey, West Yorkshire.
Harvested in the dark and by candlelight according to age-long tradition, their rhubarb has tender, almost fibre-less stalks that are bright pink in colour and have the most delicate flavour. We choose to use the Harbinger variety because it is super pink!
We chop it, then cook it with a little bit of sugar for as short a time as possible, creating the most delicately delicious rhubarb preserve.
Because we use less sugar it has a drippy, pourable texture, perfect for over yoghurt & granola, or on ice cream!
Shelf life until Jan 2022. Once open refrigerate and enjoy within 4 weeks.
Ingredients: Harbinger Rhubarb, sugar, lemon juice, natural pectin.
Prepared with 68g fruit per 100g, total sugars 48g per 100g
Now into our fourth jar ...
Not too sweet, more compote soft set style, not overcooked so retains jewelled pink of the fruit with slight tartness and texture.
I was expecting this to taste very richly fruity and zesty, but it was far too sweet. Usually the nice thing about rhubarb is that it has a bit of a sour kick, but it was totally drowned in sugar and didn’t taste natural at all.
Very nice a wee bit runny for putting on bread but super on ice cream.
Was worried it may be too tart but not tart at all. Not too sweet either! Lovely.
My first order but it won't be my last. This jam was absolutely delicious and such a clever balance of fruit and sugar so that the flavour of rhubarb came through. I had to resist eating it straight from the jar . Home made scones, clotted cream and Harbinger Rhubarb Jam .....heaven on a plate!
