Mamaw's "Mold"

Elaine Bovender


Thanksgiving and Christmas were always wonderful times for our family for many years. My mother would always make her special "mold" made from lime Jello that all of the kids loved. My mom was diagnosed with severe dementia last year and hasn't been able to cook anymore for quite sometime. This Thanksgiving, I made two of her signature dishes; her rolls and this delicious mold that that my kids always loved. I hope that your family enjoys this delicious lime Jello mold as much as mine has.
