A delicious, sweet jam. You could make this tart by only adding 5 cups sugar, instead of the 7. *If you do use less sugar, you will have less final product.

I followed Danny's measurements using the 5 cups of sugar, but changed the method after making my first batch. The first time I followed the instructions exactly even though it went against my years of canning expereince. It didn't set right away (once it had cooled completely), instead took a few days. For the second attempt I first mixed the sugar and fruit. Then brought this up to a full rolling boil and then added the liquid pectin and boiled for one minute then jarred. It set the way I was accustumed and I was able to use it that evening. Thank you for sharing your wondeful recipe with us. I plan on using it every year. My husband said it had the best flavor of any rhubarb jam yet!

I have made strawberry-rhubarb jam all my life but, this is by far the best recipe ever. The only thing I changed is, I used only 5 cups of sugar. I grow Hood Strawberries since they are the tastiest but small strawberries. I grow Canada red rhubarb. I feel using these two varieties made a difference in the taste also. This is awesome jam. It made 6 half pints with 1/4 cup left over for tasting. Marcia

Lovely flavor of strawberries but I think the rhubarb flavor was lost. Nice Jam but I'm looking for more rhubarb flavor. Thank you!
