Raspberry Rhubarb Jam {Hello Summer}


Hello I Heart Nap Time readers! I’m Shayna from The Wood Grain Cottage and I’m so excited to be here today sharing one of my family favorite summer jam recipes!

I live on a farm in rural Colorado and grew up preserving and canning as much as possible. So many of our summer days have been spent in the kitchen over a hot water bath, canner and steaming jars. This recipe is not only delicious, it combines two of my very favorite ingredients, raspberries and rhubarb! It’s also really simple to make!

Here’s our recipe for the yummy raspberry rhubarb jam. :-D

It’s perfect on toast, English muffins, biscuits, or even ice cream! It’s fresh, easy and not too sweet!

Raspberry Rhubarb Jam


  • 5 cups finely chopped rhubarb
  • 1 cup water
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 1 21oz. can raspberry pie filling
  • 2 pkgs. of 3 oz. raspberry jello


Combine water and rhubarb in large pot. Cook on medium heat until rhubarb is tender. Add sugar and pie filling. Bring mixture to a boil and cook for 6-8 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in Jello until dissolved. Fill a small sauce pan with water. Heat until just boiling, then add jar lids. Once jar lids are hot, pour jam into clean, hot jars. Top jars with jar lids and rings. Set aside to allow jar lids to seal. Makes 6 pints.

Any combination can be used—rhubarb and cherry, rhubarb and strawberry, etc.
