Going through one of my kitchen cupboards this morning I stumbled across a small package of Jell-O.
I keep some on hand to use when I make the flavored marshmallow popcorn balls, but other than that we hardly ever use it.
That is quite different from when I was growing up and Jell-O was a very common choice for dessert. Jell-O puddings, Jell-O molds, Jell-O salads, Jell-O made with extra water so that it didn't set too firmly and then a lot of fruit added to it.
Some Amish communities serve these great big bowls of red and green Jell-O with pineapples at weddings.
My least favorite Jell-O concoction used to be when carrots were shredded and added to orange Jell-O. A very popular choice to be served during the winter when carrots needed to be used before they started going bad.
