Why is it that the image in my head never quite translates to the finished product? This was one of those moments, though not as bad as my “Faux Watermelon Cake” (which y’all will hear about later). It started out as a memory, me thinking back to a time long-long ago when I was but a pre-teen. There was an old lady who used to bring this jello dessert to potluck that was always my favorite. Since way back then she was literally around eighty I’m pretty sure that it’s going to be up to my deductive/detective skills to figure out the recipe.
Until I tried it, I wasn’t too worried about duplicating the recipe-I mean come on it’s jello…right?
I remember that the jello was green so I bought lime jello, apples, celery & one small baggy of pecan pieces. I know the ingredients sound weird, but don’t knock it till you try it!! It’s delicious! Make sure you cut the apple and celery up fine, I think that is an important aspect. I figured that if I just used “one” of each then theoretically it should work…right?
Yea, not so much. Lol! But it wasn’t horrible. If I would have doubled the jello (two 8oz boxes) and left everything else at one I think I would have got the proportions correct. But I remember the ingredients being mixed in the jello and not just layered on top. Does anyone have any suggestion as to how to correct this?
