Note - If the rhubarb is dry, it is best to add about 1/4 cup of water during the initial cooking stage.
8 cups fresh rhubarb, chopped into 1/2" to 1" pieces
2 cups fresh pineapple, cut into approx. 1/4" cubes
4 cups granulated sugar
In a large size pan, combine the rhubarb and the pineapple.
Place over low heat, and cook until the juice begins to form. (if the rhubarb is rather dry, add 1/4 cup of water to the rhubarb in the pan)
Bring the rhubarb to a boil, and boil, uncovered, for about 15 minutes, stirring often to prevent sticking and burning.
Add the sugar, and bring the mixture back to a full rolling boil, (uncovered) and continue to boil for about 25 minutes (to jam stage). Stir constantly to prevent sticking and burning!
Pour into hot, sterilized jars, and seal, using a Boiling Water Bath.
Store Rhubarb Jam in a cool, dark place.
Opened Jam should be stored in the refrigerator.
Makes about 5 1/2 cups.
