Homemade "jello" (Gelatine)

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

I got this from a friend who is following the Feingold diet. We are trying to cut out artificial flavoring and coloring. This lets my kids eat jello, one of their favorites, without the added coloring. Cook time is refrigeration time.

Great recipe! Used left over extra light syrup from canning plums to make plum jello with bits of plum floating in it! Can't wait to try other flavors! I doubled the recipe and it still worked really well.
