Rhubarb Pineapple Strawberry Jam or Sunshine Jam

At one time this jam was  called Sunshine Jam so  who could pass up making this jam.


This old  fashioned recipe has  been around for years...  uses strawberry jello,  intriguing!
5 c. rhubarb, cut up

4 c. sugar
1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple
1 6oz.  pkg. strawberry Jello
Boil rhubarb, sugar, and pineapple for 20 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, add Jello and stir until dissolved. Pour into sterilized  jars and seal. Freeze  jam.
Makes about  6- 8  8 oz. jars or  16 4 oz.
This jam is easy  to make , about 30 minutes, has a nice  flavour. Yes it is high in sugar but what jam isn't,
 On  a  cold snowy day in mid winter  the name alone should  give a taste of spring to come.

You're inspiring me to get out and pick my rhubarb (hope it's not too late) and make some of this wonderful jam!
