Very, very good. Really easy to make. I'd cut down on the sugar - maybe 3 coups would be enough (?). Put the hot mixture in pint jars, put canning lids on and let them set on the cupboard. They sealed themselves. I think it would also be good in the freezer.
So easy to make and very good! I used frozen rhubarb.
Tasted this jam immediately after making it, and did not care for it at all. All I could taste was the orange jello. Put it in pint freezer containers and let it set in the refrigerator for two days. Did a retaste and it was excellent. The rhubarb flavor really came through, and it was a good, thick consistency. Will now freeze for future use. Was very easy to make.
Spike19555 I would let it set overnight if possible, it draws out the juices of the rhubarb and allows the sugar to dissolve properly.
GG54 just over 2 lbs should do the trick.
Inapatence - I have seen similar recipes using gelatin processed but they also added pectin. I think I would stick with freezing them, just to be safe.
is it necessary to let the sugar and rhubarb set over nite? or is it possible to allow only a few hours w/o disturbing the consistency???
