Another recipe that I brought home from my time spent in Amish country. A colorful addition to your Easter table or for summertime cookouts. So fruity and refreshing after a heavy meal. You can easily make any flavor you wish... orange, lemon, lime, strawberry. In this case, I used raspberry. Just match up your Jello flavor with the extract. For large groups, layer your three favorite flavors. Allow each to nearly set before layering. Prep time does not include time in freezer.
