"Instead of using the blueberries, I used 2 cups of strawberries (mashed) and strawberry sugar free jello vs. the raspberry gelatin."

"Re:Blueberry-Rhubarb Refridgerator Jam

Every year I take my 5 children blueberry picking. With the aboundance of blueberries we pick, I came across this recipie. I had never made jam before and wanted to try something differant with my children. They absolutely love this jam. They eat it on toast and especially on pancakes all rolled up. I brought this to work as a breakfast treat and everybody loved it. I've mad several batches and have given them away as gifts. The jame freezes very well. This is another recipe that I will be passing on to my children."
