I canned this so will say more. Wow, what a great idea to use strawberry jello! This came out GREAT. First, I let the rhubarb sit more like 16-18 hours so that it would really break down. Then, when I was stirring it, I used a potato masher. This broke down the pieces even more. I then poured it into hot jars and processed for 10 minutes in boiling water. Seals took fine. I really love the consistency. No big chunks but still like jam. Jelled by not to a jelly consistency. For me, this yielded four 8 oz jars and two 4 oz jars. One of the 8 oz jars wasn't quite full enough for canning so I put it in the fridge. I probably could've made it work by redistributing but I knew it would get eaten so why bother?! I served it poured over cream cheese with crackers. The family inhaled it! I will definitely make this again. I'm also going to try using jello with some different fruits for jams, such as strawberry jam and adding blackberry jello. Love this recipe!
