Rhubarb butter OK to can??

trh701(z4sd)June 1, 2011

Got an idea from someone on this forum to do rhubarb butter (just like apple butter - cook rhubarb down with a bit of water and add sugar to taste). Would this be safe to waterbath? I plan on using 1/2 sugar and 1/2 sugar substitute.

I know I could freeze it but don't really have room in my freezer.

Yes it is safe to waterbath. For purposes of home canning rhubarb is treated as an acidic fruit.

There are also several old threads about rhubarb sauce and rhubarb-strawberry variations, among others. Applesauce with a twist. You might find that idea interesting also.
