Mountain Standard Time
2 (1/4 ounce) package unsweetened Kool-Aid powdered drink mix, any flavor
6 cups cold water
2 (6 ounce) bottles liquid pectin or 2 (2 ounce) packages dry pectin
2 (1/4 ounce) package unflavored gelatin  (Knox)
6 cups sugar

Sprinkle Kool Aid and cold water in large pot . Stir in pectin and unflavored gelatin. Let sit five minutes until softened. Then stir and bring to a boil.
 Add sugar. Bring to a rolling boil for 2 minutes. Take off the burner, skim. Pour into sterile hot jars.  Wipe rims and adjust the seal and bands tightly.
Process in a hot water bath for five minutes. Make sure the water covers the lids. Remove the jars, turn upside down on a rack or cotton towels on the counter.  Do not move the jars until cool.  
You could mix flavors together and come up with your own, like  watermelon strawberry or grape and lemonade (my personal favorite).
This makes 12 8 ounce jars of jelly and it's cheap.  It only costs around 45 cents per jar.
