Ham and Rhubarb Jam Toasties

Ham and Rhubarb Jam Toasties

Serves 6

This surprisingly elegant open-face sandwich makes for an easy brunch dish or light dinner. A quick homemade, sweet-tart rhubarb jam is the perfect complement to salty, sliced ham, Dijon mustard and rustic, whole grain toast.

Ingredients: 
  • 2 cups thinly sliced rhubarb (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 6 slices rustic whole grain bread, toasted
  • 3/4 pound spiral-sliced ham, warmed
  • 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves

Method: 

Combine rhubarb, sugar and 2 tablespoons water in a small pot. Cover and cook over medium heat, stirring halfway through, for 10 minutes. Uncover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened and jammy, about 5 minutes more. 

Spread each slice of toast with about 1 tablespoon of the warm jam. Arrange ham on top, spread with another dollop of jam, garnish with parsley and serve. (Refrigerate any remaining rhubarb jam for another use.)
