Even if you have never made jam before you can make this one. Its good and EASY! This recipe came from a friend who loves rhubarb. Its an easy jam to make and can be stored in the freezer in small canning jars. Since rhubarb and peaches are not in season at the same time this is a great way to make jam combining them... using peach pie filling and fresh or frozen rhubarb.
