Rhubarb Conserve

My sister-in-law gave me the recipe for this and I finally made it tonight. It is as good as she said it would be and I can't wait to try it with my morning toast! Bagels or english muffins would also be very good. I picked enough rhubarb for this recipe, then that got me motivated enough to pick more so I could make a pie tomorrow..... :)

3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb(do not thaw frozen rhubarb)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup golden raisins or regular raisins

2 tsp. finely shredded lemon peel

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 tsp. finely shredded orange peel

1/4 cup orange juice

2 tbs. water- omit water if using frozen rhubarb

1/8 tsp. salt

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
