Balsamic Raspberry Rhubarb Jam

Here's a simple vegan paleo balsamic raspberry rhubarb jam recipe that my friend has been bugging me to share on the blog. It's our favorite homemade jam recipe, and I just love making it because it's so simple, wholesome, and also because wild raspberries and rhubarb grow in abundance on our farm and this jam is a lovely way to enjoy those two ingredients together!

So if you're looking for something to do with all your rhubarb, this recipe is a great way to use it up! I love this recipe too because the balsamic vinegar gives it an extra dimension and adds a lovely flavor, and the agar agar flakes make this jam have an amazing texture and consistency. Enjoy it!

A simple, wholesome raspberry jam recipe to make when it's rhubarb season! Gluten-free and vegan recipe... super refreshing.


  • 2 cups chopped rhubarb (I used frozen)
  • 1 cup raspberries (I used wild)
  • cup maple syrup (or another liquid sweetener of your choice)
  • juice of 1 lemon (or roughly 3-4 tablespoon lemon juice)
  • 1 stick of cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp agar agar flakes


  1. Place all ingredients except balsamic vinegar and agar agar in a sauce pan (I used an enamel-coated small cast iron pot) and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Once the 15 minutes are up, add in the balsamic vinegar, stir, and allow the jam to continue simmering for another 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the agar agar flakes until they are dissolved. Discard the cinnamon stick. Remove the jam from heat and transfer into a glass jar. Allow the jam to cool down to room temperature, then store in the fridge and use within a week or freeze for later use.
