The recipe as stated is not very good unless you like the taste of 'jello' in your jam., I prefer the taste of real fruit, so I made some changes, and it turned out delicious. I used 1/2 pkg fruit pectin added to the rhubarb in the beginning, and added real strawberries- about 2 cups. 1/2 the sugar, and made the recipe according to the pectin directions. I still added 1/4 pkg of the jello at the end for color, and it is soooo much better this way..I also did not let the rhubarb sit in sugar. That ruins the natural 'tartness' of the rhubarb. Made as is, the jam tastes like strawberry jello-made this way- it tastes like strawberry rhubarb jam.
