I've been making my own fruit fillings, but I was wondering about buying the already made kind. Any thoughts on if there is a good brand to try or ones to stay away from?
Thanks

I take a small jar of SEEDLESS jam, warm it in the micro for about a minute and pour it into a bowl with the matching jello. I do this constantly with RedRaspberry and Strawberry. Very good....very easy.

I have had good experiences with the sleeve filling from the cake supply shop. I regularly use raspberry and strawberry, customers like them too. icon_smile.gif

Great idea! Do you have to add anything else to it? It doesn't end up too sweet?

Saberger...I add nothing else..I don't think it is too sweet and amazingly, the jello completely dissolves..not gritty as you may expect. Try a batch...the most you will loose is a few bucks. Let me know how it turns out.

i do a mixture of both, depends on what type of filling i'm using. curds i will make homemade, as well as strawberry filling. others, like raspberry i will use jam, and i think i will try ddaigle's idea it sounds great!
