    Hello, does anyone out there have an easy receipe for making rhubarb jam that does not have to be refirgerated or frozen....yes once opened but for storing the made jam.. i've looked on the internet and many receipes out there but most of them have to be frozen or placed in the refrigerator once you have made it...

    thanks

    You need a canning recipe. Here's what I found:

    Hmmmm..... I've got some rhubarb but never thought of making jam with it. May have to try one of the easier methods.....

    I have made this for years... so good and always set... it is Strawberry Rhubarb though...

    5 cups Rhubarb cut fine
    1 cup water
    5 cups sugar
    1 can strawberry pie filling
    flavored jello 2/3 oz pkg ( I use strawberry)
    Cook rhubarb in water until tender, add sugar and cook a few minutes longer, stirring constantly. Add pie filling, cook 12 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in jello until completely dissolved. Pout into prepared jars, seal, store in cool place. I have used sugar free jello and it works fine, cuts down on calories some... enjoy Quilter 1234

    this link is for blubarb jam, I made some a couple years ago and it is wonderful. Sometimes you just need a spoon. **

    Made a batch this morning...very easy. Cook 5 cups chopped rhubarb with 4 cups sugar for 10-12 mins. Remove from heat and stir in 3 oz. box of strawberry jello. Pour into sterilized jars and seal. I've used this recipie for years and it is our family favorite!

    yes, you can store in cupboard. It doesn't make a very big batch- only 3 pts. Don't try to double the batch, because it gets too watery. Good luck!
