Rhubarb Jam Made With Jello

I recently got a recipe for rhubarb jam that calls for 3 packages of jell-o, but it doesn't say what size jell-o. Has any tried this recipe and what size jell-o did you use? Thanks.

This must be a Michigan recipe because I just got (last week) a recipe from my Auntie (from Lexington, MI) for Rhubarb Jam made with Jello. It is as follows:

4 cups chopped rhubarb

1 can crushed pineapple

4 cups sugar (or less)

Let it sit overnight in a stainless steel pan/bowl.

The next morning add 1 - 6 oz. box of Jello (Strawberry or Raspberry) No Water

Boil 5 to 10 minutes

Pour into sterilized jars and seal.

While I have not made this yet, this lady can cook and can like nobodys business....
