Maria asks…

Easy Rhubarb jam recipe?

I have loads of Rhubarb in my garden.I want to make jam,but as i have not made jam before i need a recipe that is easy,quick and tasty!.Thanks!

GardenersCardiff answers:

Makes about three small parfait jars

450g/141/2oz rhubarb
450g/141/2oz caster sugar
The rind of one lemon

Wash the rhubarb and remove any stringy bits. Pat dry and weigh the remainder, as it is important to have equal quantities of sugar to fruit when making jams.

Slice the fruit into one-inch pieces and place in a preserving pot or heavy-based saucepan and cover with the sugar. Place over a gentle heat, stir continuously to prevent burning and, when the sugar has melted completely, stir in the lemon rind and turn up the heat.

Boil the jam for 10 minutes, then remove the pot from the heat. Sterilise your jars by putting them in boiling water for 10 minutes, then spoon the warm rhubarb into each jar. Seal with lids.

Allow the jars to cool in a draft-free space and remember that once the seal has been broken the jam must be stored in the fridge.

Robert asks…

an simple easy way to make an igloo?

i have a load of snow in my back garden because no ones been in it all day so i’ve decided to make an igloo out of it (as i’ve already made a couple snowmen) and i went on the internet for tips but they seem too advance (i need a snow saw?!) so i thought i’d ask you guys for some help :)
oops – A* simple easy way

GardenersCardiff answers:

Find a giant mound of snow and start digging a hole into it. I think tunneling through snow works better than the brick method because it is sturdier and takes less time.
