Three Thanksgiving Molds
To make up for the fact that I haven't made any Jell-O in a couple months now. I've made THREE molds for Thanksgiving. I just hit the wall with Jell-O eating. I still LOVE to make them. But I just couldn't eat that much Jell-O all by myself. I ended up wasting it. So I took a Jell-O sabbatical, and now I have returned with renewed Jell-O making vigor!
Here is another crown Jell-O mold, only I prefer the Food Librarian's version, to the Joys of Jell-O version.
And here is a recipe I made up on my own. You take 1 (3oz.) package apricot Jell-O and 1 envelope plain gelatin and dissolve in 1 cup boiling water. Then you add 1/2 can of condensed milk and a few drops of almond flavoring. Let chill until slightly thick. Add 1/2 can pineapple tidbits, 1 small can of mandarin oranges, and about 1/2 cup slivered almonds. Beat into Jell-O mixture with electric mixer. Whip until light and frothy. Pour into mold and chill until set.
And here is a boring plain red Jell-O lobster. Because some people like their Jell-O pure and unadulterated.
