If you are looking for a rhubarb jam recipe that is simple to make, and extremely tasty too - look no further ... this is a great choice!
This unique recipe uses raspberry pie filling and raspberry flavoured gelatin. You can refrigerate what you will be serving in the near future, and freeze the rest for a later date!
Why not try some today? Jam making doesn't get any easier than this ;)
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.
This rhubarb jam also makes a great jam to use for making these muffins:

Did You Know?
Did you know that rhubarb may be the most versatile vegetable to grow in your garden?
Although rhubarb is a vegetable it is often treated as a fruit and baked into pies, crumbles, crisps, muffins, breads, cakes, and more!
Rhubarb can also be used in making ice cream, sorbet, slushies, punch, and smoothies.
I like to use rhubarb as part of my dinner menu, and include it with a beef, chicken, pork, lamb or fish dinner.
