Introduction

It looks like jam, but it's bursting with whole fruit and thick enough to eat with a fork. Serve over pork roast, on top of yogurt or cottage cheese, or on your morning toast.

    Mine turned out a whole lot chunkier than the picture. Still quite tasty. I froze half, and it thawed nicely in the refrigerator. We used it over Kashi Blueberry toaster waffles, and added some fresh blueberries and a squirt of whipped cream. - 6/22/12

    Not bad! I tossed it into the blender afterwards to help with consistency. - 3/9/13

    I will come back to rate, but right now I am making it, and I am confused by the lemon, zested and segmented. I'm guessing to put the segments in, since the pith can be bitter. This sauce is way too chunky, going by the recipe. Had to use potato masher to mash the fruit, and cooked 90 mins longer. - 6/28/12

    I made this last night - thanks for the link to the great video! I cooked it an additional one hour. This will not turn into a thick jam but is delicious, albeit, tart. Served some this morning over oatmeal. Imagine it can be used for a lot of things. Thanks for the recipe...a keeper for sure! - 6/24/12

    if you want it thicker like a jam try adding a pkg is reg or sugar-free Jello. - 6/29/13

    The gelatin would thicken the mixture but look for unflavored gelatin.

    This is a chunky sauce, thus it's a "conserve" and not a set jam you'd use for PB&J. I halved the recipe & used thawed frozen berries. Added significantly more sugar as it was too sour for my taste. Really delicious in cottage cheese! It would be great to know if it's safe for canning. - 5/9/14

    I just picked 8 lbs. of organic strawberries this week and went to the farmers market last night and bought 1 lb. of rhubarb! I'm hoping I can sub. stevia for brown sugar. I'm going to make it over the weekend and post the results. - 6/7/13

    Working with what I had available, I used a higher rhubarb-to-berries ratio so I upped the brown sugar to 1/3C. And I didn't have a whole lemon so I added some juice and dried zest. Cooked as directed and then blended w/immersion blender to get a more palatable consistency. It's pretty good! - 5/13/13

    After 2 hrs in the slow cooker on low and 1 hr on high it came out as bits of fruit in its own liquids. I was wanting something that resembled the picture; more jam-like. Very disappointed. Not so useful for PBJ but I will try adding it to plain yogurt. - 6/19/12

Used 1/2 cup sugar,"Swerve" plus cinnamon & vanilla, ginger1/4 cup H2O and did on stove top till thickened.(good with orange juice instead of water too)Freezes well also. - 7/6/16

    It did not turn out as I expected. I have whole strawberries in a sauce but I expected something like jam. Are you supposed to crush the strawberries first? - 6/20/12

    They should break down on their own with the heat but you can help them along by slicing.

    I made this tonight and served it warm over a pork loin. It was very delicious! I saved the rest in the fridge. After it cooled I checked the conserve for consistency... I think the photo is misleading, but I can see this being a great ice cream, cottage cheese, or yogurt topper. Very Easy to make! - 6/20/12
