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!

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

I had frozen some fresh rhubarb earlier, which I used in this recipe. I measured the rhubarb, then thawed, and gently squeezed any excess liquid. Easy recipe that got rave reviews, such as, "Fantastic" and "Awesome". I also froze some jam to see if it would taste the same, have the same consistency, etc. and it worked out great! Will be giving as gifts throughout the year, including Christmas time.
