This tangy sweet spread is "jam-packed" with lots of cherry flavor, plus a hint of rhubarb. My mother gives jars of it to friends during rhubarb season—it's so delicious on toast and muffins. —Faye Sampson, Radcliffe, Iowa

MY REVIEW

this is wonderful, and easy. I also processed the jars for 10 min. this is a must try.

MY REVIEW

My grandchildren absolutely loved this.

I may add an additional cup of rhubarb next time or decrease the sugar by 1/2 C. With the sweet in the jello and the pie filling, I think less sugar would not be missed!

Everyone who eats this raves about how yummy it is! I processed in jelly jars in a water bath for 10 min. for easier storage. Gave to my daughter's preschool teachers for teacher appreciation week and they all went nuts! This will definitely become a regular jam recipe!

On my second batch today. I'm going to take some to my relatives in CA. I really love the taste and the recipe is so easy!

I have used this recipe for years. I like to chop the cherries slightly in food processor so they spread throughout the jam.
