Wonderful in simlicity and yet inspiring for adding ones own creativity. Thanks for reminding us of the Knox plain gelatin of our days of our youth...

This was fun to make and the taste is very good. I added some home canned fruit cocktail. Served with whipped cream. Made for 123 Hit wonders

Great! I love that this recipe achieves almost the same flavor as Jell-O brand gelatin but you can control the amount of sugar/sweetener. You can use Splenda or sugar or a combination of the two depending on your dietary requirements and/or personal tastes. I wanted to try this the first time with a traditional Jell-O flavor so I used cherry flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid. The package actually states that it is 0.13oz so I was unsure if I should use one or two. I haven't bought Kool-Aid in ages and since companies are always changing package sizes, I flipped the packet over and it still makes 2 quarts of Kool-Aid. So I elected to use only one packet of the unsweetened Kool-Aid. This was perfect. This was easy to prepare and tasty. It will be fun experimenting with other flavors. I added some pineapple tidbits and the gelatin firmed up nicely. Thank you for the recipe.
