You can use Sure Jell to create fruit preserves and jelly recipes using ingredients such as Kool-Aid, fruit and sugar. Simply bring water to a boil and dissolve sugar and Sure Jell in a pan. Add strawberries, pineapple or even beets to the hot mixture. Allow the mixture to sit and thicken, then place in jars right away. You should place the jars in the refrigerator right after you seal them.
Another Sure Jell recipe is freezer jelly that takes just minutes to prepare. Place Sure Jell and water into a saucepan and combine crushed strawberries and sugar in a separate bowl. Bring the pan to a boil and combine the strawberries and sugar with the boiling water. Let the mixture sit for several minutes before placing in containers. Store the jelly in the freezer until you're ready to use it.
Sure Jell is simple pectin and has been available in supermarkets for generations. People have used it to make jams, jellies and other recipes for years. Available in both regular and low-sugar varieties, Sure Jell is most commonly used in jelly recipes. It also works well in ice cream dishes calling for frozen jelly. Sure Jell is not recommended as a fruit thickener for use in pies.
