Spring Rhubarb Season is Here at Last! Rhubarb Jam is easily transformed into this luscious Rhubarb Butter Sauce.
I love the process of Jam-making! Finding the perfect seasonal fruit and stirring it up in a pot with organic pure cane sugar and complementary flavoring ingredients.
What to do with it?
The jam’s sweet flavor has a tang and an exceptional ruby toned color.
I love to use it as a base for savory treatments!
Rhubarb Vanilla Bean Jam Butter Sauce is a savory sauce with the jam as it’s base.
To make it ~ To make, add Rosé Wine, Red Wine Vinegar and Minced Garlic to a small pan. Add 2 tablespoons of the Rhubarb Jam, them swirl in 3 tablespoons of Cold Butter, one tablespoon at a time until emulsified. Simple, yes?
Serve over grilled proteins and as a side sauce for all you Spring creations.
I have a special place in my heart for Rhubarb… ready to pick now through summer. My grandparents had plentiful rhubarb plants sprawling in their garden, and rhubarb pie was typically served after dinner. This beautiful ruby hued perennial has an unique flavor that is distinctive, tart and heavenly scented.
Rhubarb’s sourness is flattered by a constellation of other fruits and flavors, but I like to keep it simple, and not overpower with much… so the plant’s essence is forefront. Look for rhubarb at your local farmers’ market.
I started this Spring’s Rhubarb recipe-testing with such joy and excitement!
Although my local farmers’ markets have not yet reopened for the season, I easily found rhubarb in many supermarkets and better grocery shops.
I always enjoy jam making – sometimes I make dozens of jars when fruit is at its peak and super-plentiful.
Rhubarb typically teams with juicy strawberries, yet I wanted the rhubarb flavor to shine.
This rhubarb jam scented with vanilla beans contains diced apple – whose texture almost disappears in the cooked jam, and adds another layer of subtle texture. Vanilla beans to not overwhelm – yet adds a lovely perfumed aroma as it “dots” the jam.
After making the jam, and loving-it! – I knew it should transform into a wonderful sauce.
Try this Rhubarb-Jam Butter Sauce over Salmon like I did, or with many other dishes.
