Koolaid Jelly

on September 7, 2011

Yes, you read that right.  Koolaid. Jelly.  Sounds crazy and kinda gross right?  Well, I promise it’s not.  I found this recipe while I was searching for jellies that used fruit juice and though, hmmm that looks interesting!

It’s sooo super easy and cheap, a packet of kool aid is like, 20 cents.  So spring for the name brand, I think you can handle it.  I made a strawberry batch that was to.die.for.  LOVED it!  I also made a batch of Cherry Berry Blast because it was purple and I thought it was grape.  Well, it wasn’t, but it was better.  I actually prefer it over the grape, because to be honest, the grape tasted like, well, grape koolaid.  Not that that is a bad thing, but the others tasted like the actual fruit.  I can’t wait to try the Berry Blue that I have left over from the baby shower….no, I don’t think adults will buy my blue jelly, but I’ll bet the kids LOVE it!

I think I ended up with 5 or 6 half pints of jelly with this recipe.

What’s your favorite kind of kool aid?
