I have a punch recipe that calls for 9 oz of jello. The directions say to boil 4 cups of water and 4 cups of sugar and cool. After cooling it says to add the remaining ingredients which includes 9 oz of jello. Does this sound correct? Its hard to get the jello to dissolve when adding it after cooling. Not counting the ginger ale which is added later, it is a total of 21 cups of liquid.
I tried it putting the jello in after cooling and the punch tasted great but I didn't get the jello dissolved and had to keep stirring the punch while serving.
Has anyone else used a punch recipe that has jello in the ingredients and if so, what does your recipe tell you to do? Thanks.
Give me two seconds to find the one cookbook that is falling apart. It has a recipe in it I have tried before with jello. Be back.
Thanks. Will be waiting.
