Hi, everyone. I hope you're all having a great weekend. Thankfully, I've had a very productive day of housecleaning. Now, if it would only stay this way! :)
Recently one of my new blogging friends asked me for my mom's strawberry rhubarb jam recipe, so I called my mom and she gave it to me to share with you all. She said a neighbor had given her this recipe many years ago. It's not very complicated, but it is so delicious!
10 cups of chopped rhubarb, fresh or frozen
8 cups of sugar
3 boxes of strawberry jello mix
*Optional-one small can of crushed pineapple, not drained.
Combine rhubarb and sugar in a large pot and cook on low. Stir occasionally until it melts together and becomes syrupy.
If you choose to use the pineapple, add it here, then turn the heat up and boil hard for ten minutes, stirring frequently.
Add in the jello mix, stirring as you add.
Fill jars and seal.
Makes five pints.
In light of our recent election, I just wanted to share a bit of Scripture.
Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
I Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
I have many concerns about our nation, but I am so thankful that my hope does not rest in any national or state leader. My hope is in the LORD!
~Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. ~Jeremiah 17:7
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday. Thanks for stopping by.
