Apple or Grape Jelly with Gelatin

4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
2 cups unsweetened apple juice or 3 cups unsweetened grape juice
2 Tablespoons liquid sweetener*
1 1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
Food coloring, if desired
Yields 1 pint

Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup of juice. Bring remaining 1 1/2 cups juice to a boil, then remove from heat. Add softened gelatin, stirring to dissolve. Add liquid sweetener, lemon juice, and coloring. Bring to a full, rolling boil. Ladle into clean jars and seal.

Keep in refrigerator. 1 Tablespoon = 9 calories.

*Note: 1/8 teaspoon of liquid sweetener equals the sweetening power of 1 teaspoon of sugar. If other forms of sweeteners are used, substitute on an equivalent sweetening basis. Aspartame sweeteners may not be successful because they are affected by heat. If used, add aspartame sweeteners after mixture is heated.
