I actually have a few recipes I want to try when I get brave enough! Canning scares me! There are a few refrigerator recipe (no canning). I'll see if I can dig them up and post them in the recipes forum for you.

4 c. sugar
3 c. fresh peaches, cut up (small chunks)
1 box peach jello

Pour the sugar over the cut-up peaches and let them "juice out" for awhile (10-15 minutes). Cook about 5 minutes or until the sugar is TOTALLY dissolved. Stir in jello powder. Put in freezer containers and freeze, or use within 2 weeks.

You can do this with other fruits, as well. The person who gave this to me said that she recommends using the BIG box of jello - she didn't think it set up enough with the small bax. Or maybe you could just get some more plain geletin.

No I haven't but my Mom and her sisters did it when I was younger and I watched them do it.

I've always wanted to try making my own Jellies, I have all the materials that I bought AGES ago on sale but I've never got around to making anything. Like a poster above, for some reason it's a bit intimidating.

I was the same way you were Janice, my aunt does it all the time, and i never wanted to ask her for help. She's like a pro at it, but the Sure Jell box i used had some really simple recipes, so i gave it a shot, and I'm totally glad that i did!
