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.
Cheryl from Hessel, MI
The propartion is 1-3oz box of jello to 4 cups of chopped rhubarb
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....

of them helps you.
