This is NOT a jelly it is a JAM. Jam- A sweet spread or preserve made from FRUIT cooked to a mushy consistency and sugar boiled to a thick consistency.
Jelly- A sweet, clear, semisolid, somewhat elastic spread or preserve made from FRUIT JUICE and sugar boiled to a thick consistency.

This sounded so strange that I just had to try it and I'm amazed at how easy and great it is! I used Rasberry jello and with the tomato seeds, one would be hard pressed to tell the difference. Thank you for sharing this recipe! The over-ambitious gardener

Used grape jello and it was nasty! Sorry, I hate to give low ratings. It did jell and I had high hopes but... it wasn't very good.
