I was looking for a recipe for beet jelly and finally found one from my sister. Instead of sugar in the recipe I used 4 cups of Splenda (could be less) and I used a package of Raspberry JELL-O Light. Read More

I wonder how the review from bailey could possibly be correct that says the green color is unappealing? Green with beet juice and raspberry drink mix as the main ingredients? I believe the sugar could/should be cut down but be careful changing jelly recipes as too much change and they will not set properly. Read More

I made this to yield one cup and subbed cherry mix because the store was out of raspberry. Overall it's a great idea to make jelly with beet juice so I'll be trying this again but it is way too sweet. The color is to die for though. I'm going to eat this batch with crepes and cream cheese to cut the sweetness and next time I'll try honey or molasses and less sugar. Read More
