I have always wanted to make jam out of my rhubarb, but did not want it to sweet or to sour..and I love cherries so I went to the cupboard and revamped a recipe that I had.
This may be a little on the sweet side but not enough to mask the flavor of the rhubarb and having the cherry mingled in there was the part that put it over the top.
When I first made this, I was so upset, because it did not set up and was ready to toss the whole thing out..But my taste buds got the better of me and I put all the containers in the freezer for another day and kept one in the refrigerator... The next day I got the container out...I was doing cartwheels in the kitchen..the jam set up and I made some toast for lunch and I was soo happy that this came out.

I got the basic recipe from Cooks.com
