LOL, Yvonnne, we had kinda the same idea! Now I want some rhubarb pie.

Wonderful object lesson, endearingly written.

A beautiful lesson in kindness, nicely integrated with a cooking lesson. I've never tried rhubarb jam, but it sounds interesting! Well done.

Great idea, mingling the teaching opportunity with the recipe! This is very good.

Really loved the complexity of these two subjects side by side. What a great lesson for all of us, and a great view of God's perspective. Good job!
"Crunch! Pwah! Pwah! Yuck! "

Would that really be in quotes like the person is actually saying those words? I think that is a mistake. Just wondering.

Cute story.
Terrific parallel, the rhubarb and a bitterness of the heart.

Rhubarb is such a bitter plant all by itself; it's amazing what a little sugar can do! Love the object lesson in this, Vonnie. Teen sisters just never seem to get on with each other during those years at home--speaking from experience here.
Great take on the topic. Very well done.

I've never eaten rhubarb,but I really enjoyed your take this challenge. It was easy to feel like I was in the kitchen with grandma.

Loved this Vonnie - does the recipe really work too? My challenge to you is to submit this to Focus for their magazine for pre-teens...GRIN

Yes, the recipe is correct and works. Since it uses gelatin, you need to refrigerate it. (after opening)

Vonnie--wonderful story! My grandma made Rhubard Jam too (she used the candied orange slices). We loved it! Congrats on your highly commended AND your Editor's Choice!!!
