Got a few rhubarb plants from my neighbor. Wanted to try something different or at least I thought. Found this in a old church cookbook. Everyone who tried it was impressed--even non rhubarb eaters.


  1. Cook rhubarb and water till boiling.
  2. Add sugar.
  3. Let mixture come to a rolling boil.
  4. Boil 2 minutes, stirring often.
  5. Add Jello and stir well.
  6. Remove from heat.
  7. When mixture is almost cool (fruit won't come to the top), put in small freezer containers or small margarine containers.
  8. Freeze some and keep rest in refrigerator.

Wow--everyone loved this! I bought some rhubarb from the Farmer's Market and this was my first time to use rhubarb. I made it with raspberry jello as the other reviewer suggested. Very easy to make--and tastes like it was difficult. Thanks for a great recipe--I'll use it anytime I get rhubarb!

I made this last yeat with some frozen rhubarb I had in the freezer. The first time I made it I used raspberry jello (because I was given an industry sized one in a food hamper). I loved it and no complaints from hubby about the rhubarb. I then made it with strawberry it was great too but I think I like the raspberry more.
