Jello Jam ~ It's Easy and Delicious

Earlier this year, I made this wonderful Jello jam. I recently opened one of the delicious jars of jam. It was so yummy that I had to tell you about it. This is the easiest jam to make, no pectin used, just Jello.

I love the flavor of  the watermelon Jello in this plum jam.
Jello Jam
• 5 cups crushed fruit ; * see note
• 2 cups crushed pineapple ; drained {I used more plums and did not add the pineapple to my plums.}
• 6 cups sugar
• 6 oz. Jello gelatin powder ; * see note
• NOTES : *Use any fresh fruit you like, such as berries, apricots, peaches, plums, pears, cherries. Choose a complimentary flavor of Jello to go with the fruit you use.

How to make it
