    I made this recipe with sugar-free jello and Splenda in place of the sugar-GREAT. Also changed it up with different flavors of jello-GREAT. Am going to try it today with blueberries and figs. Stay tuned.

    I used 3 cups of chopped figs, 3 cups of sugar with 2 packs of strawberry jello and it came out great. Although, I cooked it on medium heat for 20 minutes before placing in sterilized jars. The jars all sealed by placing upside down for about 10 minutes before turning rightside up again. Store in a dark cool place and it keeps for a long time.
