Jello in a Can

Stephanie L.


One day Leanne and I were talking about gelatin salads and discovered both our Mothers made this salad when we were growing up.Must have been popular in the 60's! I make it now for my family and I'm sure Leanne does too.I thought she had posted this recipe but I see she hadn't so I'm posting it.
You can serve this with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream to serve as a dessert.
