I just found this recipe
My kids love this! Yesterday we made our third batch. So far we have tried black cherry, loved it!, strawberry lemonaide (it was okay), and mixed berry. First two batches were half batches and I could not figure out why it did not set. READ YOUR BOXES of pectin!!! Sure-jel only comes in 1.75 oz packages here!!! I did not realize that! Anyway added extra pectin and made the full batch this time and it set beautifully. Now enjoying a peanutbutter and mixed berry kool aid jelly sandwich :D
I made this 2 years ago...totally didn't realize on this site, that I could rate it....spacecadet. Anyway. I made this with several different flavors and had total success. I even used the invsible Kool-aid and mailed it to my nephews that year for Christmas...and at that time Kool-aid had 2 flavors and not it's down to one...They totally loved it. My kids too. It was rather easy to follow. Thanks again. It's a keeper!!
This is a great jelly. Easy to make. The only advise I have after doing jellies for over 20 years is this is a double batch. When doing jelly you can not do more than one batch at a time. It just wont set right. So I used this recipe and cut it in half and the jelly set right away and I did not have to go back and fix it. I also used a flavored gelitin to match the kool aid I used and it worked great.
this is the ultimate poor persons jelly darlene had this recipe its old a granny grunt i iowa posted it THANK YOU for posting it here
Last year I made 6 different flavors and mixed & matched them as Christmas gifts for my staff at work. It was a HUGE success. I do suggesst that you shop all year long for the most unique flavors of Kool-aid
My young nieces & I made Tropical Punch Kool Aid Jelly last night to put into Christmas Baskets, but it didn't gel. We did enough "quality control tastings" to know the flavor is good and the batch is worth saving, so they are coming back over tonight and we will be using the Liquid Cement recipe (#151544) to repair the jelly.
This tastes really good, but I had trouble getting it to gel. The first time I canned it, it didn't set up, so I used one of the recipes on this site to fix it. It worked great!
This jelly set up beautifully. The addition of the margarine to cut the foam is very helpful and the gelatin ensures a great set up. This would be a great recipe for a beginner just learning how to make jelly! I made it with the Kiwi Watermelon for my 5 year old son. We call it "Kyle's jelly". He's a big PB & J fan. I'll be trying different flavors in the future and I might even make some as gifts. I made it in pint jars. I even posted a photo. This was a great project for a bitterly cold day!
I always have a hard time getting jelly to set up, but this worked for me. We made fruit punch jelly. Thanks.
