Sure signs of spring are the bright strawberry leaves that emerge as soon as the snow recedes and the reddish tips of rhubarb plants that poke up through the earth. Strawberry Rhubarb is our go-to jam this time of year.
Light in color and taste and texture, it satisfies in the way a spring day does.
Serving Suggestions: Add Strawberry Rhubarb jam to a salad finished with a light vinaigrette, stir a spoonful into a fruit salad, or spread it on a thick slice of hot buttered whole-grain toast. Make an easy appetizer using crusty bread, a mild cheese, and a dab of Strawberry Rhubarb jam. Heat under the broiler for two or three minutes and enjoy with your favorite Chardonnay.
Cheese Pairing: Mild, buttery-flavored cheeses such as Monterey Jack and Muenster
Wine Pairing: Chardonnay, Gamay, Rose
