I give this a 5 star rating. I used frozen strawberries with fresh rhubarb but drained off some of the juice from strawberries. It set up great. I did add 1 tablespoon of butter to keep from foaming. I will be making it again and giving recipe to friends.
Good jam, BUT. I only got 3-1/2 pints from this recipe. I used 2 lbs of strawberries, which I washed, cut and then gave a quick whirl in the processor to break them up slightly. Used 2 C of chopped rhubarb from my freezer, which I did the same to. My rhubarb measured slightly under 2 cups before processing, and my strawberries were just about 4-1/2 cups after processing, so yield should have been close. Tastes good, and I think it will set up fine. Just disappointed that I only got 1/2 the jars that I had expected.
strawberry-rhubarb jam was my mother's favorite jam and she loved this recipe. I can't wait to make it again
I crushed my strawberries and rhubarb together in the food processor. Using the food processor is a big time saver.
Excellent! I didn't process though; just put in the freezer.
