This is a very old recipe for making rhubarb jam and it is known under a variety of names, but it keeps coming back because it is easy and tastes good. It will darken as it ages, but it still is an excellent jam. Use rhubarb with small stalks rather than larger stalks. Use jars that have been specifically made for home canning (not old peanut butter or pickle jars), with two-piece lids, and use a new seal every time. The jars and screw-tops can be re-used.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut rhubarb into small pieces. Add sugar and pineapple and mix well. Bring to a boil over high heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Stir in jelly powder until dissolved, then remove from heat and bottle in hot, sterilized jars. Seal, then process in boiling water bath for 10 minutes.

This is the easiest and best jam I have ever made. Everyone that I gave this jam to loved it. I am now making my second batch and probably will make a third. Thanks for posting

This was great. I was looking for a strawberry rhubarb jam I could store in the cupboard. It tastes delicious. Thanks for an easy yummy jam.
