Choose firm, tender, well colored-stalks, good flavor and few fibers. Wash, trim and cut into lengths package. Heating rhubarb in boiling water for 1 minute and cooling promptly in cool water helps retain flavor and color. Dry pack either raw or preheated rhubarb tightly into containers without sugar. Seal and freeze.

Adding Jell-o to the Kool Aid you are making popsicles with will help them stay firmer without dripping
everywhere. 6-21-03


Wash and dry, slice, pack into bags, double bag so it won't collect frost. Defrost in microwave.

Cook rapidly, until berries are clear and syrup is thick. 10-12 minutes. Pour into a shallow pan. Let stand uncovered 12-24 hours in a cool place.

Adjust caps.  Process pints 20 minutes, quarts 25 minutes in boiling water bath.


Remove cherries from an anti-darkening solution and drain well. Add ½ cup hot water, juice or syrup to each hot jar. Fill jars to ½ inch from top of drained cherries, shaking down gently as you fill.
