As for the rhubarb, I use half and half with other fruit. I freeze the rhubarb (which also softens the fibers) and combine with whatever seasonal fruit. Try it with raspberries or strawberries, it's lovely!


  • 4 cups plums, chopped (don"t peel)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 7 cups sugar
  • 1 pouch certo


Combine the plums., lemon juice, and sugar in a large heavy pot. Stirring often, bring to a hard boil (on that cannot be stirred down), and boil for two minutes. Remove from heat and add certo. Skim if necessary.
