1 (3 oz.)
box cherry gelatin, or raspberry gelatin, or strawberry gelatin


1In a large bowl, add the rhubarb and sugar; stir to coat evenly.
2Cover the bowl, and place it in the refrigerator overnight.
3The next morning, place the rhubarb mixture in a large kettle.
4Cook over medium heat; stirring constantly, until the mixture starts to boil, then lower the heat just a bit, and continue cooking for 12 minutes (stirring constantly).

6Transfer the jam to 4 half pint-size sterilized glass jars.
7Cover the jars with lids, and let the jam cool to room temperature, before storing it in the refrigerator or freezer.
