  1. In a large saucepan mix together the rhubarb, apples, sugar, water and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, then cook over medium heat for 20 minutes or until the fruit is soft. Stir in the pectin and boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Ladle into sterile jars, wipe rims with a clean cloth or paper towel, and seal with new lids. Process in a bath of simmering water for at least 10 minutes, or as recommended by your local extension if you are at a high altitude. Store unopened jars in a cool dark place. Refrigerate jam after opening.


  • Cook's Note:
  • To make strawberry-rhubarb jam, replace the apples with three cups of strawberries and the pectin with one 6-ounce box of strawberry gelatin.

Love it! Tastes amazing! But, just as a side note, if you're a beginner at canning, apples don't set the same way strawberry or other jams set. It won't be solid, even after the cans seal themse...

This was a very easy and flavorful recipe!! I used strawberries instead of apples. I also used my food processor to chop the fruit (I don't like big pieces). I simmered the fruit with only 1 1/2...

YUM! I was a little hesitant at first but this recipe is amazing! I followed the recipe to a tee - until I got to the pectin part. I decided it was thick enough for me without the added pectin s...

Yummmy! Tasted like apple pie! I boiled the fruit, water, and sugar for about 15 minutes...the final product ended up a little thick so I'd recommend making sure the fruit is soft enough befor...

DELICIOUS! But not as expected. Very apple-y!! Also had to run it through a food mill at the end, as the apples did not entirely cook down enough. There were some awkwardly large chunks I wa...

This jam is amazing! I used a bag of frozen rhubarb and it was perfect. Everyone who tries this raves about it! Thank you Amanda!

What an awesome recipe! I used my food processor for my fruit there for i only had to boil it for about 10 mins. I will definately make this again, it tastes like apple pie:)

Changed just one thing: I used chia seeds instead of pectin. General rule i use is 2 T for every 16 oz of fruit. This recipe, I ended up using 6 T. Will likely try it with just 4 T next time sin...
