These citrus fruit juice jellies are a refreshing snack on these hot days!! My favorite is the one made with pink grapefruit juice.

I made two kinds this week–orange and pink grapefruit, they were both wonderful!

Here is the easy recipe:

4 c. of citrus juice of your choice ( I like the simply fruit juice line–simply orange etc.)

1/4 to 1/2 c. of sugar

4 envelops of knox unflavored gelatin

Mix the gelatin into 1 cup of cold juice and set aside to soften.

whisk it in so it is fully mixed~

Heat the remaining juice with the desired sugar–I use more for the grapefruit juice because it is tart. Sugar also makes the flavor of the juice stronger in the finished product. Heat the mixture until the sugar is dissolved and it is just below a rolling boil in a saucepan. Add the gelatin mixture and remove from the heat–whisk until the gelatin in dissolved.

Pour into prepared pans (I spray mine with Pam) and refrigerate until firm. Cut into squares and enjoy 🙂 You can halve the recipe easily if you don’t need the full batch. Above is a picture of a full recipe of pink grapefruit and a half of orange. Next time I am going to experiment with the V8 fusion juices :).

Have a refreshing day!!
