Gail's StoryIt can't get any easier then this! I got this off the internet along time ago, it is so easy and very yummy. You get to pick the flavor.
Pictured is Grape and Cherry, I have run out of the small containers so used the larger ones and just filled 1/2 full.
envelope of any flavor kool aid (or any flavor unsweetend soft drink mix)
water ( i use hot water to help dissolve the sugar )
sure-gel fruit pectin
1stir Kool-aid mix with water until dissolved.
Mix fruit pectin in a separate small bowl with 1/2 of cup of the sugar.
Gradually stir into prepare Kool-Aid, mixing thoroughly. set aside for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.
2stir in the remaining sugar gradually; continue to stir until completely dissolved and no longer grainy.(any small lumps will disappear after the jelly stands overnight.)
3pour into clean dry containers filling to within 1/2 inch of tops.
4cover at once with tight lids. Let stand at room temperature overnight.
store in freezer until opened: then in refrigerator.

Do you know,if the sugar could be substituted with Splenda ? I'm diabetic..

I can't see what difference it would make, But I'm not sure how much splenda you would have to put in maybe a little and taste it then add more until it is sweet enough? I think 3 cups of splenda would make it really really sweet This would be interesting to find out I'm not sure who to ask :-)
