Want to try something new with all that Rhubarb from your garden? How about Rhubarb Freezer Jam?
There are no notes of Grandma's source on this recipe - but like a lot of the recipes I found in her collection, there are 3 copies, all identical (and all marked V.G.). I don't recall ever trying Rhubarb jam, but it sounds good. My mom used to make a rhubarb sauce to spoon over pancakes, waffles or french toast and I always really enjoyed it, so I thought this jam would be good too. With the late summer we had, there's still time for putting up jams and things, so it seems timely. I hope you enjoy it.
Rhubarb Freezer Jam
5 Cups cut up rhubarb
3 Cups sugar
1 - 3 oz. pkg. strawberry Jello
Mix rhubarb & sugar & put in saucepan over low heat - stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring mix to a boil - cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat & stir in Jello. Continue stirring until well mixed. Skim & pour in glasses. When cool put in freezer.
