> Also, here, jelly comes in cubes.. you get a pack of it, rectangular, I guess 5" by 3" or so.. its like really firm jelly. ...

<<<<< Oh, I think I know the type, that IS better. I don't even know if it comes pre-packaged that way here, but it sounds like a variant we make ourselves called "Knox Blox/blocks." You add a plain unsweetened/unflavored gelatin cooking powder in the recipe to make Jello. I think "Knox" is the brand of one.

Ya know what I really like is Jello cake -- where you pour the hot liquid Jello over cake and it mixes in and adds the most delightful texture and flavor! Nice and moist and springy.

> I have made totally home made jelly before.. one with champagne that was wonderful! I just love the texture of it!!

<<<< Yum, I wouldn't have known it would set with champagne in it! I may have to try that, although showing up at pot-lucks here with anything Jello-based opens you up to a lot of ribbing, tasty or not. Making fun of Jello is a national tradition. At holidays my poor mom is forever presenting a new Jello dish, even though some will refuse to even try it. I don't know why she plugs aways at Jello recipes under those circumstances, she does HATE to cook so you'd think she'd play it safe. But *I* always try them, especially if they have some creamy ingredient that makes the "boing-iness" less bland.

Have you ever tried champagne and sherbet/sorbet? That makes a punch. Pour not-too-expensive champagne into a punch bowl, then drop in sherbet and let it melt. I think you use something like two or three parts champagne to one part sherbet. Gets nice and frothy and fruity!
