This is wonderfully tangy. I added a handful of frozen cranberries as it was sitting and the combination is quite delicious. It made 4 jars.

This is, indeed, a very tasty jam. Easy to make, too. I cut step 4 to about 15 minutes as my syrup was ready. My efforts yielded about 3 cups as opposed to 4.5 pints! I think I would need a whole lot more rhubarb to get that many pints!
