Karla's notes for this recipe:
Jelly couldn't be any easier than to make it with Jello or Kool-aid pkg's. You can get some really pretty colors of jelly.

I got these recipes from the net along time ago and have no idea from where.

FOR THE JELLO JELLY : Put first 3 ingredients in saucepan and bring to a hard boil. Add sugar and Jello: mix well, and bring to hard boil again. Boil 15 to 20 minutes. Skim top and fill jars.
FOR THE kOOL-AID JELLY : 1. Mix water, Sure-Jell and Kool-Aid together.
2. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
3. Stir in sugar.
4. Stir and bring to a full rolling boil that cannot be stirred down.
5. Boil for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
6. Remove from heat.
7. Quickly skim off foam with a large metal spoon.
8. Pour into jelly glasses and seal.

9. If you want to try to make it sugar free I think it would work, just make sure to get the sugar free pectin (sure gel) otherwise it will not set.

Karla I have never heard of this recipe before and it sounds so interesting that I'm saving to try.
