Making Food Coloring Free Gelatin (Jell-o)

I know that ALL the Jello brand flavors have food coloring in them... no-brainer...
My 6 yo son is on a artificial food coloring free diet- so one of his fav treats WAS out... till I remembered Knox Gelatin. (yes, I know what Knox is made from, eww)

It is Color & flavor free... we used Grape Juice to color & flavor it in one shot. It was perfect... I am proud of myself for this & will make more in the future with other flavored-juices.
