Knox Gelatine?

Okay so how do i make my own jello with this stuff and have it come out good? I made up a batch of Kool-aid using Splenda and then used it to make the gelatine.. but the gelatine has absolutely no taste at all. How do i get it taste better?

Flavored extracts.

Or use a pre-flavored sweetener like davinci syrup.

Ok, this is how I make jello. Simple and good.

4 packets Knox gelatin
8 c. water, divided
1 pkg. KoolAid
sweetener to suit your taste

I put the gelatin into a 4 cup measure, then add 1/2 cup cold water. Let soak for 5 minutes. Pour boiling water in to the 4 cup line. Stir until dissolved. Add sweetener and 4 cups cold water (I use some ice for quicker setting)

I see where some use more KoolAid with less water. Seems to me that would be very firm and strong tasting. To each his own, I guess.

Here's what I use...perfect every time (IMHO of course )

Andrea's SF Jello

3 pkgs Knox
1 or 2 pkgs Koolaid, any flavor (depending on how strong you like it, I usually add about one and a half to two)
4 cups water
Liquid splenda or other sweetener to taste

While boiling 2 cups of the water, combine other 2 cold cups of water in medium bowl with the knox and koolaid stir gently to combine and soften the gelatine. When water is boiling, stir into bowl containing gelatine. Whisk briskly to disolve all jello and koolaid. Add in sweetener (I use about 4 or 5 drops of liquid splenda) to desired sweetness. Put in fridge to set.

I found when I use 4 pkg of knox, it gets too firm for my liking. This is almost identical to regular jello.

I messed up! Sorry!!! (hanging head in shame )

I just realized that I use 2 pkgs. of Kool Aid when I make jello instead of 1 pkg. like I said in my previous post. So the way I do it is 1 pkg. for every 4 cups of water.

Gummy Worms

This is a bit O/T but thought you might want to give this recipe a shot:


2 packages sugar-free Jell-O
2 packages plain gelatine
1 cup boiling water

If sour gummies are desired, add one packet of unsweetened Kool-aid
in a flavor that goes well with your Jell-O flavor. The Kool-aid
really makes them sour (but good).

Stir all ingredients until dissolved. Pour the mixture onto a large
dinner plate and refrigerate. It will set in about 20 minutes.

You can either slice it into worms, or roll up the rubbery disk of
gelatin and cut it every 1/4 inch with a large pair of scissors. You
can also use tiny cutters to make little shapes.
