I make this jam every year with the over abundance of rhubarb in my garden. The great thing is that there is no need for strawberries – the flavor is in the Jello!
Place rhubarb and sugar in a large pan and let this mixture sit for 2 hours. This brings the juices out of the rhubarb. Then turn on the heat and bring to a boil. Stir and boil for 5 minutes. Stir in the Jello mix and stir to mix well. Ladle the mixture into pint size jars, wipe lid, and place on the lid. Cool to room temperature. Place in the freezer.
I have always used canning jars which are tempered and can be placed in the freezer. Never have had a problem with cracking. Ever.
If you are lucky enough to live where the cherries are aplenty I advise you to print out this Sweet Cherry Vanilla Jam recipe and tape it somewhere that you will not forget about it when the cherries come into season! Or you can use frozen cherries like I did.
This recipe was made using the new Ball Jam & Jelly Maker but you can make it the traditional way also.
