Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

This tangy Strawberry Rhubarb Jam recipe is a favorite with my family. They'll put it on almost anything, but especially like it on muffins or buttermilk biscuits. —Deb Kooistra, Kitchener, Ontario

    Great recipe but it's too sweet for my tastes. I still make it but cut the sugar down to 1 cup and the texture is still perfect.

    Great recipe! I did not use the crushed pineapple, but substituted an additional 8 oz. of crushed strawberries. This worked just fine and the jam is delicious!

    Very good easy Strawberry Rhubarb Jam recipe. I've made it twice; once as written and once using sugar-free strawberry gelatin. Both set up well. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Loved this recipe, it does not use pectin but has a nice consistency. When making a canned sauce like this or other jams and jellies the correct quantity of sugar is key. If you decrease the sugar it will not set up properly. Finding a lower sugar recipe would be best if you find this too sweet.

    I made this yesterday and was disappointed. It was way too sweet so would decrease the sugar and it never set up. It will be good as a syrup or ice cream topping. I don't know what could be done to make it gel better.
