if you did 2 1/4th cup berries and rubarb, you can use 7 tablespoons pectin, and 10 cups of sugar...thats my most demanded version of it anyway...(very sweet variety)
The other way is 4 cups of crushed berries, 2 pounds rhubarb chopped and cooked in ¼ cup water, 4 to 6½ cups sugar or honey (or a 50-50 Splenda/sugar blend), plus a 1/4 cup lemon juice. Rhubarb and strawberries, don't have a lot of pectin, so you'd need a package and a half of the boxed pectin, (boxes are 1.75 oz), so 5.25 tablespoons pectin will work. (none tooth decaying version)
