Rosebud Preserves have released their new season rhubarb jams, made using world famous forced Yorkshire rhubarb.
Sourced direct from renowned growers David Westwood & Son, sixth generation Rhubarb growers based in the Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle near Wakefield, their forced rhubarb is available from January through to March only, and is held in high esteem for its beautiful colour, subtle flavour and balance of acidity and sweetness.
The two new season released include Yorkshire Rhubarb & Ginger Jam, featuring a tangy Rhubarb flavour, enriched with warm stem ginger and naturally set using unrefined sugar, alongside Yorkshire Rhubarb & Orange Jam, which is brightened with the sweet citrus of fresh orange.
Owner Elspeth Biltoft said: “Spring is just around the corner and this is exactly the right time to enjoy the new season forced rhubarb supplied to us from the ‘Yorkshire Triangle’.
“Beloved by chefs for its naturally sweet, deliciously floral, outrageously pink and tender stems, it makes a lovely simple compote, crumble or accompaniment to mackerel and equally delicious light, bright and super-fresh jams, when combined with the exotic warmth of stem ginger or the tangy citrus of ripe blood orange.
The new season range is available on at www.rosebudpreserves.co.uk, and at independent retailers nationwide.
