Last week, when I made the oven chicken "salad", I also made this little oddly colored jello salad. [by the way, Irene, I think I'm all done with the potato chip recipes, so you're safe now... moving on to jello.]
First, a little history lesson. Did you know that powdered gelatin was invented way back in 1845. In 1902, the advertisements placed in Ladies Home Journal declared jell-o to be "America's Most Famous Dessert." [source] I had no idea that this important ingredient of so many "interesting" concoctions had been around so long.
Looks, delish, no?
How do you make it? It is super easy!
1 3-oz. package of peach jell-o
1 cup of orange juice
1 cup of buttermilk
Heat orange juice to boiling. Dissolve jell-o in hot oj and stir until completely dissolved. Let cool to room temp. Add buttermilk and stir until mixed well. Pour into jell-o mold (I used 4 6-oz pyrex dishes). Refrigerate until comletely set.
And it is actually pretty tasty, in spite of it's salmon-y looks.
Take it away, Mr. Cosby!
