Step 1

In a bowl, soak 2/3 C small pearl Tapioca in 2 C cold water for 1 hour.

Step 2

In a large saucepan, Pour 3 C hot water over 2 C diced rhubarb. Add the tapioca and water. Cook until rhubarb is soft and tapioca looks clear.

Step 3

Add a 3 oz. box of Cherry Jell-O and 2 C sugar. Cook until sugar is dissolved and mixture is thickened.

Step 4
