Since Easter is rapidly approaching, I decided to share our family’s favorite Jell-O recipe. It’s been something of a family secret until now, but since it’s been so popular with everyone who has tried it, I decided I could part with it!
- 15 oz. can dark sweet cherries (pitted)–I use Oregon Fruit brand
- 20 oz. can crushed pineapple
- 1 large package (6 oz.) cherry Jell-O
- 13 oz. cola
Drain fruit from both cans of juice AND SAVE. Add water to juice (if needed) to make two cups. Heat juice to boiling; add Jell-O. Stir until dissolved; pour into bowl and cool slightly. Add cola and fruit; pour into 1 1/2 quart mold if desired (I use a trifle dish). Refrigerate until set.
