• 1 pint fully ripe strawberries
  • 1 pound rhubarb
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 box powdered fruit pectin


Steam and thoroughly wash strawberries. Crush, 1 layer at a time, about 1 pint strawberries. Measure 1 cup into large bowl or pan. Cut about 1 pound rhubarb into 2-inch pieces and grind or finely chop. Measure 1 cup; add to strawberries. Thoroughly mix sugar into fruit; let stand 10 minutes. Mix water and fruit pectin in small saucepan. Bring to a full boil and boil 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in fruit. Continue stirring 3 minutes. (A few sugar crystals will remain.) Ladle quickly into scalded containers, filling to within 1/2 inch of tops. Cover at once with tight lids.

Makes about 8 jars.
