You may reduce the amount of rhubarb and add in fresh strawberries if desired, try adding in different flavors of gelatin too! Plan ahead the fruit/sugar mixture needs to stand overnight before cooking, if you prefer a sweet jam use the 3 cups sugar... your going to love this jam!

I have made a similar recipe for years but decided to try this one because it used a lot less sugar. It turned out great, easy to make and the family loves it. This will become the recipe I use from now on.
- 5 1⁄2 cups chopped fresh rhubarb (or use half rhubarb and fresh strawberries)
- 2 3⁄4-3 cups white sugar
- 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry gelatin (for the best results use Jello brand gelatin for this)
- In a large saucepan stir together the fresh rhubarb with the sugar; cover with a lid and let stand 24 hours.
- After the 24 hours bring the rhurbarb and sugar to a boil over medium heat.
- Reduce heat to low and boil stirring constantly for 12 minutes.
- Remove from heat and gently stir in the gelatin powder until completely combined.
- Transfer to sterilized glass jars and refrigerate.
