  • 8 cups rhubarb diced (see note below on using frozen rhubarb)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 3 oz package of strawberry Jello


  • Add the rhubarb, water and sugar to a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until boiled. Let simmer for 5 minutes or until the rhubarb is tender and broken down.
  • Remove from the heat and stir in the package of strawberry jello. Let cool. Store in the refrigerator.


To use frozen rhubarb: thaw the rhubarb first and let any excess liquid drain off. Don’t squeeze any liquid out, just drain what naturally thaws out of the rhubarb.
