Half Hour Jam

This recipe is very easy and economical to put together (especially if you have a bounty of rhubarb in your garden like I do!). I got this recipe out of one of my church cookbooks. It is one of my favourite homemade jam recipes. Enjoy!

Half Hour Jam

6 cups diced rhubarb
4 cups sugar
1 cup crushed pineapple (with juice)
170 grams of strawberry Jello powder (2 small packages or 1 large package)

Combine rhubarb and sugar in a large pot. Bring to a boil slowly over medium low heat. Boil for 15 minutes. Add crushed pineapple and Jello powder. Bring back to a boil and then pour into clean, hot jars. Process 15 minutes in hot water bath. Also freezes well. (The bright red jar of jam in the front of the picture is the half hour jam.)

Those look and sound delicious! I long to one day live on some property so I can have a garden. I'm stopping by from the Raising Homemakers linky. :)

Love making jam, too. Just this week, a friend from Bible study gave me a tattered copy of our church's 1933 cookbook that she unearthed in her late mother's home. It has the exact recipe for this jam-called rhubarb jam.
Cannot wait to try it now! Thank you:)
