  • This makes 12 8 ounce jars of jelly.
  • I add the Knox unflavored gelatin because my husband likes a firm jelly.
  • I am sure you will be "hooked" with the flavors you can make and the cost is about 45 cents per jar.
  • Some flavors take longer to gel than others.
  • but there is a recipe that works to set or gell the jelly in the description of recipe.
