I read all the reviews and then made a few changes to the original recipe. I used almost 8 cups of rhubarb instead of the 6 and after cooking until soft, I added a 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple along with the jello (which was sugarfree), and light cherry pie filling. I brought it all to a boil and then slow boiled for about 20 minutes, to thicken, stirring often. I water bath canned in sealed jars for about 15 minutes. I can really taste all three flavors in the jelly and it's not oversweet. Fantastic on toast, ice cream, and I'm sure will be great with ham.



This is a good recipe. The cherry gelatin flavor is a bit overpowering. Next time I will use a 3oz package of cherry gelatin and a 3 oz package of unflavored gelatin instead of a 6 oz. pkg of cherry gelatin. I will make it again!!
