Applesauce Jelly

1 can apple sauce
2 packages of your favorite sugar-free Jell-O

Warm apple sauce in sauce pan until hot. Do not boil. When apple sauce is warm enough to melt Jell-O add the 2 packages of your favorite jello. Stir until well blended.

After it is well blended, remove from heat and let cool. Once the mixture has cooled pour into jars. Then enjoy fat free and sugar free jam. Once a jar is open, save it in the refrigerator.

Strawberry Jam

Strawberries with flowers

4 cup strawberries, halved
1/2 cup concentrated white grape juice
2-1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 tsp Grated lemon rind
1-1/2 tablespoon unflavored gelatin (1-1/2 envelopes)

Cool to room temperature before freezing.

Because this is stored in the freezer, you may use any airtight, leakproof freezer container for sotrage, even plastic containers. Tastes better if allowed to sit for a week. Freezes beautifully for up to 6 months.

Bonus: Strawberry Jiffy Jam

2 cups strawberries
1 cup cold water
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored gelatin, sugar free
