This recipe came out really good, but REALLY sweet! Instead of boiling the jam for 12 minutes on low heat, I boiled it for about 5 minutes on high heat. Boiling the jam on high heat ensures that it will jell properly and kills bacteria more effectively than on low heat. Also, I decided to process the jam instead of just refrigerate or freeze. I ladled the hot jam into hot, sterilized jars, and placed then in a boiling water bath canner and processed for 10 minutes. All the jars sealed nicely. Thanks for the recipe, I can't wait to try other flavors of jello!

We LOVE this jam and have been making it non-stop since I found the recipe. (We have lots of rhubarb to use up...) Fresh or frozen rhubarb both work well. To cut back on the sweetness a bit, I increase the rhubarb to 6 cups and reduce the sugar to 2-1/2 cups. Great stuff!

Previously, I had made a recipe that was almost identical to this, except that it called for a package of frozen strawberries. When I came across this recipe, I thought I'd try it as is, but I had 2 pounds of strawberries in my refrigerator. I chopped up one pound of strawberries and added them to the pot during the cooking stage. What a difference! It turned out really well. I just finished making my second batch in less than a week. I expect to make much more of this this summer (of course, I end up giving quite a bit away). My only tip is to cook the mixture until the rhubarb is soft (I don't even pay attention to cooking times).
