Make this gelatin dessert anytime of the year using canned oranges and pineapple.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 package gelatin, 3 ounces
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ice cubes
  • 1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks, packed in juice, not drained
  • 2 cans (11 ounces each) mandarin oranges, packed in light syrup, drained

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Pour boiling water into a large bowl. Add the gelatin and cinnamon to boiling water. Stir for at least 2 minutes until gelatin is completely dissolved.
  3. Drain pineapple, reserving the juice. Add enough ice (or cold water) to the juice to measure 1 1/2 cups. Add the gelatin mixture and stir until the ice is completely melted.
  4. Refrigerate for about 45 minutes or until the gelatin is slightly thickened (consistency of unbeaten egg white).
  5. Reserve 1/4 cup each of the pineapple and orange. Add remaining pineapple and oranges to the gelatin. Pour into 1 1/2 quart serving bowl.
  6. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm. Garnish with reserved pineapple and oranges.

Instead of canned pineapple chunks the recipe was made using smaller canned pineapple tidbets. Some people liked the cinnamon flavor, others did not like it.
