Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

The rhubarb harvest in our area is just beginning.  The first crop from my garden went into jam this week...and we enjoyed it on fresh biscuits before it had a chance to cool off. 

  • 5 cups chopped rhubarb
  • 3 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange or apple juice
  • 1 small package strawberry flavored gelatin
  1. Combine chopped rhubarb, sugar and juice. 
  2. Stir well and allow to sit for about an hour.
  3. Bring to a boil over medium heat....and continue to boil for 12 minutes, stirring continually. 
  4. Remove from heat and stir in gelatin.
  5. Pour into sterile jars and refrigerate.  (Can also be frozen).
