  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain jars well before filling.
  • Trim rhubarb; cut into 1-inch pieces. (Do not peel.) Put through food chopper, using finest blade. Or grind, in batches, in food processor or electric blender. Place three layers of damp cheesecloth or a jelly bag in large bowl. Pour prepared rhubarb into cheesecloth. Tie cheesecloth closed; hang and let drip into bowl until dripping stops. Press gently. Measure exactly 3 cups juice into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot.
  • Stir pectin into juice in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Add sugar. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middles of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

How to Measure Precisely

To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cups, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.

    I tried this by following the recipe and only got about 5 drops of juice. I needed to make the jelly when the fruit was fresh. Needed to add water and simmert the fruit to get the juice. Freezing the fruit to get juice later wasn't an option at that time. Does anyone have any other ways of getting juice from chopped up fresh fruit?

    Helpful hint for obtaining Rhubarb juice. I freeze the rhubarb when it is in season and then in winter when I take a bag out of the freezer to make bread or pie or torte, I save the juice and make beautiful clear jelly. I even sometimes add the juice from frozen strawberries and make strawberry/rhubarb jelly. It works wonderful!
