2 cups sliced, fresh rhubarb

1 pint strawberries, stemmed and sliced

1 (1¾-ounce) package fruit pectin

4 cups sugar

1 tablespoon lemon juice

  3. Add sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Microwave on high an additional 2–4 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes and letting the jam boil for about 1 minute. Let cool 10 minutes in casserole, then pour into sterilized jars. Seal, let cool, then refrigerate.
