This one was one of our favorites when we lived in Maine, getting fresh rhubarb in the South isn’t as easy as it was up North, haha. This is extremely good with strawberry jello, although I’m sure the raspberry is delicious as well. For a Slight change of pace you can substitute 1/2 c. honey for the sugar or omit the sugar all together since it has the jello in it.
