I cooked and mixed strawberries and rhubarb with Knox for today's flavor, Stevia to taste.
My Journal: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread57916.html
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
4 packets of Knox, 3 cups of boiled organic grape juice, 1 cup of cold (room temp, actually) grape juice. I just follow the directions on the box. Tasty! I haven't had grape juice in ages.
I wasn't sure what it would be like. It's firmer than jello (probably isn't going to melt at room temp either), softer than gummy snacks.

Some people just need a sympathetic pat... On the head... With a hammer.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
... if you "do" dairy, don't forget Panna Cotta.
... better still, Panna Cotta over Jelly (what we call Jello over here in't UK):
Living in the Ice Age: Eat More Gelatine!
Do try to get it before the cat, though ...
Jelly - Red grape juice (just juice, from grapes ... not concentrate or full of stabilisers, sweeteners and so on) and sufficient gelatine to set.
Panna Cotta - single cream, sufficient gelatine to set, splash of vanilla essence, touch of honey (if required).
I've taken to making up a pint of jelly, dividing into 6 glasses, four half full ready for topping with Panna Cotta and two simply topped up with frozen berries:
... touch of double cream on top.
It certainly makes a fun change from oxtail and lamb shanks.
I do like red wine, so may well make up a half and half red grape juice and a good Burgundy. Maybe next time I buy a bottle. Also, blackberries are just about to come into season and the bushes all around look loaded! I guess we'll be sick of blackberry jelly in a month, or so ...
