Rhubarb Rose Water Jam

This is the perfect jam for a spring tea party. The delicate, elegant flavor is a natural match for croissants or tender butter scones. To give it as a gift, pair with a bouquet of fresh wild flowers or a box of your favorite tea.

Note: If you can't find Pomona's Universal Pectin (available at many supermarkets) substitute Ball Low- or No-Sugar Needed Pectin.

If you end up with extra stewed rhubarb in step 3, don't throw it out! Stir in a little honey or agave and use it as a dessert sauce.
