Mix water, Kool-aid, and pectin together in a large pan, like a stock pot as the liquid will boil up high, several quarts at least.
Bring this to a boil making sure everything is dissolved. After it is boiling add sugar and boil this hard for one minute to a boil that cannot be stirred down.
For a firm jelly use 1 to 2 tablespoons less water. Makes about a quart of jelly. Pour into jars the size you desire.
Hi how long will this jelly last? I plan to make some
it sounds good and easy and take it on a trip late
summer. Do you have to put it in frig BEFORE it is opened?

I keep my jelly in the frig...when I make it I put it in small jars with tight lids...like the ones that jelly comes in...or canning jars...then I seal it up and it keeps for me till it is used up.....
cld. you use splenda in place of sugar - I used to make this back in the 60's. It is really quite tasty.
