cherry rhubarb freezer jam
I was finishing up at our school's teacher appreciation car wash when my friend Lindsey saw me from the road and pulled over with a loaf of hot homemade bread and jar of cherry rhubarb freezer jam. That's the kind of thing that happens approximately once in a lifetime but you wish would happen every day! This jam is absolutely wonderful. I had never had cherry jam, rhubarb jam or a combination of the two. It was a real treat. This jam recipe is a keeper!!
cherry rhubarb freezer jam (my friend Lindsey)
6 cups rhubarb, chopped (Lindsey says you can buy it frozen at Market of Choice)
1 1/2 cups frozen cherries (How easy! Cherries can be high-maintenance. Not this time)
2 cups sugar
4.5 ounces cherry gelatin (I never would've guessed!)
Combine and bring to a boil then simmer for 15 minutes. Take off heat and add jello. Cool uncovered. Ladle into jars. Place in refrigerator uncovered for 4 hours. Add lids to the jars then allow to freeze in freezer.
