Made as directed and it set up nicely. It has a consistency similar to Jell-o, but spreads nicely on bread. I used Watermelon Kiwi Kool-Aid and added 2 drops of green food color. The color in the jar is nice but it was almost clear when spread. The green photo shows the color. I got 4 half pint jars instead of 4 pint jars. I processed in a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Thanks for sharing.

  10. If you want to try to make it sugar free I think it would work, just make sure to get the sugar free pectin (sure gel) otherwise it will not set. If I try it anytime soon, I will post and let you know how it turns out.
