Farmers Market Find: Rhubarb Jam

Last Update: September 28, 2022

Here at Thrive Market, we’re all about supporting sustainable, local farming, and we encourage our members to shop at their local farmers market for seasonal produce—it’s the perfect complement to a pantry full of spices, oils, and cooking essentials from Thrive Market. This week, we’re exploring the bright, tangy flavor of rhubarb in a super simple Paleo-friendly jam that comes together in just minutes.

Rhubarb Jam Recipe

Yield:  1/2 to 3/4 cup jam 
Active Time: 5 minutes 
Total Time: 20 minutes 


1 cup rhubarb, sliced into 1-inch pieces 
1 1/2 tablespoons ghee 
3 to 4 tablespoons raw honey or coconut sugar 
3/4 cup orange juice 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
Zest of 1/2 lemon (optional) 


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, sauté the rhubarb in the ghee, 2 minutes. Pour in honey or coconut sugar, stir to coat, and cook 1 minute to let sugars begin to caramelize. Pour in orange juice and vanilla, turn down the heat to medium-low, and simmer to reduce, stirring occasionally. When nearly all the liquid has cooked down, mix with a spoon to break up rhubarb pieces. Let cool and store in fridge, one week.
