Place the remaining 3/4 cup fruit juice, plus any fruit purees (or additional juice) for a total of 2 cups, into a medium, heavy-bottomed pot on medium-high heat. Slowly pour 1 1/2 cups of fruit juice into a mixing bowl, stirring slowly.

In a medium mixing bowl, spread the gelatin over 1/4 cup of the fruit juice (I used 100% organic grape juice for this batch) and stir thoroughly until mixture begins to thicken. Sprinkle gelatin all over the surface of one-half cup of fruit juice, and allow it to sit for about 5 minutes to dissolve the gelatin.

Add 1/2 cup ice to 1 cup cold water — this helps gelatin to chill and start setting as you blend.

Also, heat two cups juice as instructed, and make gelatin with 1/2 cup vodka instead of juice. To start, you are going to want to bloom the gelatin in some fresh, chilled, or room temperature fruit juice, in order to make sure the final results are smooth and uniform.

Next, while the gelatin is blooming, combine sugar, citric acid, and remaining water in a pot, stirring until it is pureed and dissolved. For each quart of gelatin in the pot, add one cup of Wic. (white or brown) or honey, plus a little bit of shelling water and slightly beat the whites of 5 eggs (less if you are short, but it will not turn out quite as clear). Add the powdered gelatin and the honey (or sugar) to the mixing bowl, mixing it around until gelatin and honey/sugar are dissolved.

My kids did not get their hands on the same jello as me when I was younger, instead enjoying a fresh, homemade version made from fruit juice and gelatin powder. My mom would make cherry or strawberry Jello Cake, and would even make the gelatin itself as dessert, topped with fresh fruit. When I made the blueberry Jello that you see above, I used 1 cup apple juice, plus 1 cup pureed fruit.
