4 cups diced rhubarb

1 small can (14 ounces) crushed pineapple

In a large saucepan, combine the diced rhubarb and sugar. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for approximately 12 minutes, or until the rhubarb is tender and releases its juices.

Add the crushed pineapple to the saucepan and continue cooking for an additional 3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Sprinkle the cherry-flavored gelatin over the rhubarb mixture and stir well until the gelatin is fully dissolved.

Pour the prepared jam into clean jars and seal them according to your preferred canning method. Allow the jam to cool completely before storing it in the refrigerator.

The jam is now ready to be enjoyed! Spread it on toast, biscuits, or use it as a delicious topping for desserts.

Note: Adjust the amount of sugar used according to your preference and the tartness of the rhubarb. Remember to follow proper canning procedures for long-term storage.
