Soft Drink Jelly

Recipe by Kathy in Fla

I took another recipe and changed it to suit my taste and to offer more choices of flavors. I have made this recipe many times and each time it comes out perfect. I hope you enjoy the results as much as we do. Cream Soda, Orange, Mello Yello and Strawberry are our favorites so far.

Easy recipe to follow and the results were great. I used Sundrop because that is what was requested but I can see that the possibilities are endless. Will be using this recipe again. :) Recipe made 3 half-pints with a little extra for tasting.
