Rhubarb-Raspberry Jam

Rhubarb-Raspberry Jam

4 cups 1-inch pieces fresh rhubarb (about 1 1/2 pounds)
3 sprigs fresh mint
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 Cups raspberries

Combine rhubarb pieces, mint leaves, sugar and fresh lemon juice in heavy large Dutch oven. Cover and refrigerate until juices form, stirring occasionally, at least 8 hours or overnight.

Bring rhubarb mixture to simmer over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and boil until rhubarb mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Juice raspberries, add to rhubarb mixture, and boil until mixture is thick, stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes longer. Remove jam from heat. Cool jam completely.

Process in hot water bath 10 minutes.
