Milkmaid's Recipe Box

FOOD, FOOD, FOOD! I'm such a FARMER at heart-- even a CALF knows that so much in life is about the FOOD! (A bit of a "bio" about me can be found way down near the bottom.)

You can find a recipe index entitled "Labels" down along the right side, starting below the picture of the farm. Then, below the "Label" list are pictures of some of my old "standbys"-- click on their picture and it should take you to the recipe.

You will see no advertising on my blog; this means there is no monetary benefit for me having "visitors" or "joiners"-- having said that, if you do wish to JOIN my blog, you can do so by scrolling w-a-y down to near the bottom of the page...

Broken (Cut) Glass Jell-O Salad

Prepare 3 oz. pkgs.  of lime, strawberry and orange Jell-O gelatin (or three other flavors of your choice) separately by dissolving each in 1 cup boiling water, then adding 1/2 cup very cold water.  Stir each until completely dissolved.  Pour into separate 8x8-inch pans.  Chill until firm, or overnight.

NEXT DAY:  Drain (but save the juice of) one 15-oz can of crushed pineapple. You should have about one cup of juice.  If you have to, add water to equal one cup of liquid.   Heat reserved pineapple juice to boiling point. 

Add one 3 oz. pkg. lemon Jell-O to this boiling juice, and stir to completely dissolve.  Ad 1/2 cup very cold water.  Add the drained pineapple to this liquid and refrigerate this mixture until chilled enough to resemble jelly.

Whip up 1 cup whipping cream.  Add the pineapple mixture to the whipped cream and blend softly, but well.

Cut the three varieties of Jell-O into 1/2" cubes.  (Set a couple of each color 'cubes' aside for decorating the top when finished.)  Fold the cut cubes gently into the pineapple/cream mixture.  Pour into a pretty glass bowl.
