ISO Good Jelly Candy Recipe

I am looking for a TNT jelly candy recipe.

I would like to do it from fruit juice without pieces of fruit.

I have tried a couple with unflavored gelatin and didn't like the results.

First one was like chewing on rubber and had very little flavor. Next one was soft but kind of "wet" and again .. with little flavor.

I've seen some that call for using pectin and I wonder if that is a better route to take.

The juice I used in one was apricot nectar and the other was cranberry juice - both strong flavors.

I am beginning to think perhaps I need to add artificial flavoring.

My initial desire was for something with the consistency of aplets and Cotlets.

I also was hoping to find a recipe that would duplicate those orange slices that are a little firmer.

Have any of you succesfully made jellies?

I haven't made them, but I do think I would rather use the pectin as it is fruit based.
