My Mom made the exact same

My Mom made the exact same rhubarb sauce. Her rhubarb pies I miss the pie. Delicious no strawberries just rhubarb.

Preserving

I would like to process this in 8 oz jars. How long would you water bath these?

If you don't get any canning

If you don't get any canning answers, consider freezing the syrup in the Ball Jar - just leave an inch of headroom for expansion. I freeze everything I don't know how to can in Ball Jars.

I have canned it before you

I have canned it before you have to have jars just like for jam hot,clean, and hot clean lids.Dry the lid before placeing on top and make sure no fruit is on the rim, leave a space at the top and listen to hear the snap I boil my rhubarb till it looks broken and stringy yes with the sugar and water and some times I put a bit of lemon juice not allot. If you would feel better you can boil your jars for a half hr but I never with the last batch and it wont last long lovely with cream or ice cream.

10 minutes for 1/2 pints, 15

10 minutes for 1/2 pints, 15 minutes for pints.

For any questions regarding

For any questions regarding canning, go to the National Center for Home Food Preservation. I'd include the link, but the Almanac won't allow embedded links.

A good rule of thumb is about

A good rule of thumb is about 10 minutes from hot cooked contents being added to the jar.
Really all you want is for the jars to seal.

The only items we pressure cook are green beans and tomatoes.

'airtight' ?

Would stretching a clingwrap film suffice for this ? Or are we talking a plastic lid ? Or even a big stainless steel stew-pan with its lid in which the sauce has been prepared ?

I would never place plastic

I would never place plastic wrap against hot food - chemicals from the plastic wrap can leach into the food.

How do convert pounds into cups?

This sounds amazing! Do you have any idea how many stalks I would use. Or, cups of cut up rhubarb? I don't have a scale. Thanks!

There's something missing

There's something missing here. It says "...let boil just 1 minute." However, the instant you add the rhubarb to the boiling syrup, the boiling stops, and it takes several minutes to start boiling again. When do you start timing the one minute? When you add the rhubarb (in which case it doesn't "boil") or when the syrup begins to boil again?

Hi Charles, thanks for

Hi Charles, thanks for commenting. You should start timing (1 minute) when the syrup and rhubarb starts boiling again, after you've added the rhubarb. Enjoy!
