Note - if you are using frozen rhubarb, thaw it first in a sieve over a bowl, and discard the excess liquid.
Also, because the rhubarb tends to "shrink" when thawed, be sure to thaw enough frozen rhubarb to make 6 cups. (I thawed about 8 cups frozen rhubarb).
1 1/2 pkgs. (85 gram size) raspberry flavoured gelatin (ex."Jello")
1 can (approx. 540 ml. size) raspberry pie filling
4 cups granulated sugar
6 cups fresh or frozen rhubarb, chopped into 1/2 - 1" pieces
In a large pan, combine the rhubarb and the sugar, and allow the mixture to stand overnight.
On the following day, heat on medium low, and simmer, uncovered, until rhubarb is tender, about 20 - 25 minutes, stirring often.
Stir in the raspberry flavoured gelatin crystals and the raspberry pie filling.
Bring the above mixture to a boil, allowing to boil hard for 1 minute, stirring almost constantly to avoid sticking and burning.
Remove from heat, and allow to cool slightly.
Using a ladle, transfer the raspberry rhubarb jam into jars or containers.
This jam can be stored in the fridge, or store it in the freezer until ready to use.
Freeze for up to 1 year.
Makes about 5 cups, or 5 - 250 ml. size jars.
