Rhubarb Strawberry Jam

It's finally rhubarb season. I went out and picked a bunch last night so I could make jam. I got 5 containers made today.  I'll be sharing with my sister, and I'll probably make one more batch and that will last us until next year.
4-5 cups diced rhubarb with a little water
4 cups sugar
1 - 10 oz. package frozen strawberries
1 - 3 oz. package strawberry jello
Cook rhubarb.  Add sugar, jello, and cook 3 minutes.  Add strawberries.  Stir without further cooking.
I store mine in the refrigerator but it can also be sealed with parafin.

The jam looks delicious and tasty!
Did you grow the rhubarb?
The jars look very nice and such a cheerful red color!

Joyfully in Jesus,

Yes, I did grow the rhubarb. I have a decent sized patch in my backyard.
