This can be refrigerated or stored in the freezer, try this with different flavors of jell-0, the possibilities are endless! fresh chopped strawberries can be replaced for the rhubarb if desired or use half of each, plan ahead there is a 24 hour chilling time for the rhubarb, servings is only estimated, this is a sweet jelly ;-)
