I was looking through my drawer of recipes and came across this kid tested favorite, yes, you can make jelly from Kool-Aid! And it's so easy, cheap and like I mentioned, a favorite among the kiddo's. But even if you don't have any children, make some for yourself, and have fun choosing a flavor, so many! I like this recipe because I don't have to can it since it only makes 4 pints, just store it in the fridge or give it as a gift, it goes quick so it won't be around long!
1 pkg. kool-aid, any flavor, no sugar added
1 pkg. Sure Jell
3 c. sugar
3 c. water
Mix water, sure jell and koolaid together. Bring to a boil, stirring so it won't stick. Add sugar and stir well. Bring to a full rolling boil that can not be stirred down. Allow to boil for 1 min., stirring. Remove from heat, skim off foam and pour into clean jars and seal. Makes 4 pts.
I think I'll make some for my grandkids this week, I also want to make some strawberry freezer jam while berries are still 99 cents a box. Were still waiting on our toms so salsa making is still unknown. But were getting cucumbers daily along with peppers which I'll dice and freeze. Gardens are producing now and it's a nice feeling knowing your helping yourself even in a small way.
Thank you to those who signed up for the tag pad swap, just pop me a email with your mailing info. so we can get that underway. There is still a few slots open if you'd like to join us. It's easy and fun. You will receive the pad where you will decorate a page and send it off to the next one on the list. In the end, it will be returned to me and I'm thinking about a drawing for all who joined in, one lucky scrapper might end up with it?
Happy jelly making!
