Rhubarb Pear Gelatin Recipe

Rhubarb season is almost here...and this is one of my family’s favorite ways to eat it. I tried this mixture of ingredients on my own, and my family of 12 couldn’t get enough. —Linda Strubhar, Cataldo, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling YIELD:12 servings


  • 2 packages (6 ounces each) strawberry gelatin

  • 4 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb
  • 2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups cold water
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) sliced pears, drained and chopped

  • 2. In a large saucepan, combine the rhubarb, water and sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Remove from the heat; pour over marshmallow mixture, stirring to dissolve gelatin. Stir in the cold water, pears and remaining marshmallows.

"I first made the original recipe.

The next time I substituted quartered strawberries for the pears, eliminated the marshmallows, covered the top with homemade whipped cream, and garnished with halved strawberries. Family inhaled it and it disappeared in moments at a church potluck."
