The Best Low-FODMAP Rhubarb Jam Recipe; Gluten-free, Vegan

Print Friendly Version

I’m not going to lie, this low-FODMAP Rhubarb Jam may be the best jam I have ever had.  EVER.  It tastes just like rhubarb pie, but without the crust.

I hear you thinking- its jam.  What is the big deal?  I’ll tell you the big deal.  When you take a spoonful of this low-FODMAP Rhubarb Jam it creates a silky, sweet, gorgeously tart flavor on your tongue that spreads over your whole mouth.  Your eyes widen.  Your lips form the letter “O”.  You take another spoonful (larger this time), just to check again.  You call to your spouse or child- “Honey, you have got to taste this rhubarb jam!  It’s incredible!  And I can eat it, since it is low-FODMAP!!”

All true. Personal experience.

Not only that, this low-FODMAP Rhubarb Jam recipe is a snap.  Easy peasy.

You will love this low-FODMAP Jam even more on my low-FODMAP Dinner Rolls or low-FODMAP Potato Buns.

While rhubarb has a short season (spring), it is a delicious and healthy low-FODMAP fruit option.  Packed with anti-oxidants and other nutrients, rhubarb is naturally low-calorie as well.

Enjoy it year-round with this low-FODMAP Rhubarb Jam recipe (you can make it with both frozen and fresh rhubarb)!
