Not what I remembered
The Ugly Binder, from a church cookbook
3 pkg. (small) red jello I used raspberry
3 cups boiling water
1 pkg. frozen strawberries I added about 10 oz because I think that's how big the pkg used to be
1/2 pint sour cream I used lite
Make jello and let cool. When jello is cooled, beat sour cream well into jello. Add
strawberries with juice into above mixture. Grease mold with small amount of
vegetble oil for easy removal for serving. Let stand overnight.
All through my first pregnancy I thought about a jello mold that my sister made a few times years ago. This time around I finally asked her for the recipe and she couldn't remember of course. She found this one in a church cookbook but it wasn't as creamy as the one I remembered, not in color or texture. I thought it was very tasty so I could be misremembering the color and texture. Oh well, like I said, these were very good and I finally got to use the little molds I bought quite a while ago.
I tried to Google the recipe but there's a very popular jello mold with sour cream on top that keeps coming up. I think I might just need to add more sour cream to this recipe to get what I want.
I've never had jello set faster. I was putting something away in the refrigerator less than an hour later and I moved the bowl that held the leftover jello, that didn't fit in the molds, and I noticed it was already set!

Question of the Day: Do you like Jello?
