This is a story about my Rhubarb plant named Ruby.
Ruby has been very prolific this year so I decided to experiment with a new recipe to use her bounty. I found a recipe on allrecipes.com for Strawberry Rhubarb Jam that looked very tasty.
The recipe is very simple. I started out by harvesting some of Ruby's stalks. Her leaves are poisoneous so be sure not to use them. Rinse off the stalks to remove all the dirt and soil.
Next, chop up the rhubarb into 1 inch pieces until you get approximately 6 cups.
I was very excited about the next step. I got to get out my food processor which is always a good time. Pulse the 6 cups of rhubarb with 2 1/2 cups of sugar (or splenda).
Take the mush that is left and boil it for 5 minutes on high heat.
Almost done! Remove from heat and add 1 (3 oz) box of strawberry gelatin.
Last step...place in a tupperware container and refrigerate!
Bon Appetite! Ruby never tasted better!
