Hi Sharon, yes I am aware there is no nutritional value in this,It is mostly for flavor and texture, figure a Tbsp wont hurt on toast or muffin, it is just a fun recipe. :-)

I assume you all realize that this jelly has no nutritional value--no real fruit. Just artificial flavoring & the sugar you add. Well, it probably has citric acid. I'm not sure, whether that is good or bad. I don't mean to make anyone mad. In fact, I like a lot of your recipes, Gail, & have saved many. And, was planning to make you a favorite cook--still am! But, just so you know...on the Kool Aid jelly!
