Scrumptious. Delightful. Summery. Soothing. Creamy. Flavorful. Never a smidgen left and bring copies of the recipe because everyone will ask for it!
That perfectly describes this “bring back the old recipe” that I have used for at least 30+ years!
And here’s the back fill on this story…………………………
My Mom’s sister, Olive was not a cook. Nope…..not even a little bit. She had a great knack for heating up frozen dinners but that was about it. Aunt Ollie retired as the Director of Nursing for a large metropolitan hospital and attended every Alumni nursing school dinner from her nursing school. She went to lunches with her friends and had frequent dinners with colleagues. Often times she would come home all excited with a recipe some friend had made for one of these luncheons or dinners. Handing it to either my Mom or me with the command ” This is wonderful! You have to make this!” And so, we did. Just to please Aunt Ollie. Some of these recipes we kept. Some went by the wayside but this one???? Lawd have mercy! This one has survived and thrived for well over 30 years. No family gathering or picnic or just a summer dinner is complete without Aunt Ollie’s Jello! Trust me, you will add it to your summer menu and not look back.
Here it is….for your reading and making pleasure……Aunt Ollie’s Jello 🙂
