Okay, its been a while since I posted a recipe. My keyboard on my laptop was jammed. For that story check out my other blog here. But now I'm baack ... and so is the jell-o. I know I've done a lot of these but it seems there are unlimited ways to make it. No. I am not going to devote the whole blog to only jell-o molds. That being said my Mom did have 2 more that I found, and since I have taken a pledge to copy all her recipes here goes the next one.
Lime Jell-o Salad
1 small (3oz) pkg lime jell-o
1 cup hot water
1 cup cottage cheese
1 mall can crushed pineapple
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 small container cool whip or whip 1 can (well chilled) condensed
milk with juice of one lemon
Dissolve jell-o in hot water. Place in refrigerator to cool and thicken slightly. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour into a mold and place back into the refrigerator to set. Turn out mold onto serving dish and serve.
Did you know the first 4 flavors of Jell-o were orange, lemon, strawberry and raspberry. Lime wasn't introduced until 1930.
