NOTE: I learned to make this Jell-0 salad from your grandmother Munroe (mymother). Jell-0 salads were very popular when I was growing up andthis was the one she always made for Thanksgiving. I made the changeto cranberry when Jell-0 began producing a cranberry flavor. When itbecame unavailable, I simply started using cranberry juice in placeof the cold water called for in making Jell-0.
1 large (6-oz.) or 2 small (3-oz.) boxes of orange Jell-O
1 cup shredded carrots(approximate measure)
1 cup crushed pineapple,drained (more if you like)
1 cups cranberry juice (use in place of cold water in mixing the Jell-O)
1 tablespoon applecider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
Dissolve Jell-O in 1 ¾cups boiling water. Add the cranberry juice, vinegar, and salt. Stir in the carrots and pineapple. Chill until set.
NOTE:At other times of the year, I make this salad using cold waterinstead of cranberry juice. Another variation would be to combineorange and lemon Jell-O. Sometimes, I use pineapple chunks ortidbits, drained. I used the juice as part of the cold water to beadded. Being diabetic, Dad and I now substitute sugar free Jell-O and use "Diet Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice."
