I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

I like this on toast, ice cream and I also like to take a cracker, spread a little cream cheese on it and top it off with the strawberry rhubarb jam.

(makes 5 jelly jars)

*6 cups rhubarb, chopped small
*2 cups sugar
*1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored jello
*2 cups crushed strawberries

~In a large saucepan, stir the fresh rhubarb and sugar together.
~Cover, and set stand overnight.
~Mash rhubarb mixture with a potato masher.
~Add strawberries to rhubarb mixture.
~Bring the rhubarb, sugar, & strawberries to a boil over medium heat.
~Turn heat down and simmer for 20 minutes.
~Mash mixture once again with potato masher.
~Remove from heat.
~Stir in dry strawberry jello.
~Transfer into sterile canning jars.
~Wipe top of jars, making sure the are clean and free of any jam.
~Place canning lid on jar.
~Process in hot water bath for 15 minutes.

Freeze jam instead of the hot water bath. I Ball Plastic Freezer 8 ounce Freezer Jars".
