Yeah... that's right... empty jello.
(as a kid, we called it "empty" when it didn't have any stuff in it.)
Growing up, it seemed like we consumed the jiggly at least once or twice a week...maybe more! If it wasn't with a meal at home, it was at a church potluck or part of a school lunch. And, no matter what anyone put in it to dress it up... the "stuff" always floated to the top.
Now, I just never think to make it. But as John and I tasted the yummy lime green jello he made, we reminisced about the creative ways the wiggly gelatin had been disguised...
- Mandarin oranges
- Fruit cocktail
- Shredded carrots... usually in orange jello
- Strawberries and Bananas
- Tapioca with wild grape juice
- Whipped cream and berries with nuts
- Orange slices
I know there's more options than this... HELP!
