Summer is just around the corner and rhubarb has started to grow everywhere! What does that mean? Rhubarb in everything of course!

Rhubarb goodies usually include strawberries, orange and/or ginger. Inspired by these flavours, I decided to create a jam with orange, cardamom and start anise!


Here’s my recipe for honey roasted cardamom rhubarb jam:


  • 1.5 kg rhubarb
  • 1 orange
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom seeds
  • 1 star anise
  • 1/2 cup honey (or to taste)


  1.  Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cut rhubarb into 3 inch strips.
  3. In large bowl, add the rhubarb and 1/4 cup honey, and coat.
  4. Zest and peler à vif the orange (remove the skin and pith).
  5. Place rhubarb and orange on baking sheet.
  6. Roast for 20 minutes or until soft.
  7. Transfer into a small pot, add the remaining honey, and spices and bring to simmer for 20 minutes.
  8. With a handheld blender (or regular blender), blend until smooth consistency.
  9. Taste, and adjust sweetness, if required.
  10. Enjoy!
