Fruit Juice Knox Blox

I'm sensitive to food colors and flavorings, so I have experimented a bit with fruit juice jigglers. This is a treat the girls and I enjoy without worry of artificial stuff.

Here is a good classic recipe to use, with room for all kinds of fruit juice variations. It is paraphrased from a Knox Blox gelatin package.

Fruit Juice Knox Blox

2 T. unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold fruit juice
1 1/2 cups fruit juice, heated to boiling
1 t. sugar or honey(opt)

Sprinkle gelatin over cold juice. Let stand one minute. Add hot juice and stir until gelatin completely dissolves, about 5 minutes. Stir in sugar. Pour into 8 X 8 pan. Refrigerate about 3 hrs, until firm. Cut into squares or let kids use cookie cutters for fun shapes!

This month I made a variation that we really liked. I used Ocean Spray Cran-Blueberry juice, added a touch of raspberry oil, and added about 1 T. strawberry preserves. The strawberry preserve really added a nice flavor, even with so little used.

Share a variation that you enjoy!
