Can't Be Beet Jelly

3 cups beet juice

4 tsp. lemon juice

1 box powdered pectin

4 cups sugar

1 small pkg. raspberry-flavored unsweetened Kool-Aid

NOTE: I make the beet juice by peeling raw beets, dicing them, and cooking them in water. (I throw the beets away---but that's another thread on another group....)

Combine beet juice, lemon juice, and pectin (Sure Jell) in large pan. Bring to a rolling boil. Quickly add sugar and boil for 6 minutes. Add the soft drink powder and mix thoroughly. Pour into sterilized 8 ounce jelly jars. Fill to within 1/2 inch of top.

Put on cap, screw band firmly tight. Process in boiling water bath

5 minutes. Yield: Four 8-oz. jars.
