My husband's aunt gave me this recipe, and it's become our family's favorite breakfast topping. Sometimes I'll substitute cherry pie filling (which I put through the blender) for the blueberry pie filling—it's tasty, too! —Rita Wagenmann, Grangeville, Idaho

"This was very good although I used far less sugar. My rhubarb is very red and quite sweet so I was able to make this with 3/4 cup of sugar and it was lovely."

"My family likes this sauce. I used cherry jello instead of the raspberry. It was delicious."

"I made a double batch of this with a couple adjustments.First I cut the amount of sugar in half.I figured with the sugar in the pie filling and jello,it'd still be plenty sweet.I was right. Next,I wanted it be more of a jam.So I doubled the amount of jello.It turned out perfectly.Mom and I had it on our waffles last night and absolutely loved it.I was even eating some of it right from the jar."

"I have made this in combination of 6 oz. package of gelatin and different flavors of pie filling and put it into jam jars and freeze it. Wonderful as a jam."

"This was yummy! I also made it for my parents using Splenda (they are diabetic) and they loved it too! It's also good with huckleberries instead of blueberries."
