    Yummy! I used peach jello in place of orange because I had on hand.

    I made the jam using strawberry pie filling and strawberry Jell-O. Everyone I gave a jar to asked for the recipe. I put it hot into jars and put the lids on, turned them upside down and covered with a towel for a couple of hours. They all sealed and are keeping well on a low light shelf.

    I'm looking forward to making this for Smas gifts as I already make a Strawberry, Rhubarb, Blueberry Jam the the same way - which is FABULOUS. I use 1/2 Splenda - has anyone tide using Splenda or 1/2 Splenda in this recipe to cut the sugar for diabetics?

    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.

    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???
