Rhubarb Freezer Jam

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.

Do you have a family jam recipe you'd like me to include on our recipe blog?  Please feel free to post your recipes as comments!
