I have to make a ton of fondant this week, and of course need gelatin for it. I can find the knox brand gelatin in those tiny envelopes, but would like to find any brand in a larger package. My questions are: 1) does Knox sell larger packages; and 2) is the Sure-Jel product, sold for making jams and jellies, the same thing?
Knox does sell it in tubs... I don't recall the size, but it's sort of like a smaller can of iced tea mix. Although now that you mention it I don't know that I've ever seen it in the grocery stores. I've only ever ordered it commercially. You may be able to order it online. Sure-jell is fruit pectin, not gelatin.
Does NJ have bulk food stores? In Canada, we can measure our own product ourselves into plastic bags. The store sells grains, candy, spices, chocolate, cereals etc. Ours has geletin by the pound.
I've also heard that you can buy it in health food stores...
