Festive Fall and Winter Molds: No holiday meal is complete without a shimmering Jell-O mold. Easy to make, yet impressive to behold, these dishes are essential for special gatherings of family and friends.
Impressive to behold. Indeed.
Behold. The Holiday Fruit and Nut Mold.
This one, the Raspberry Gift Box, is especially repulsive to me for two reasons: 1) it is oddly opaque and 2) it is a loaf of Jell-O. The recipe specifies the Jell-O curing to take place in a loaf pan. Looking just like a package, this beautifully garnished mold makes an eye-catching centerpiece for any birthday party or shower.
Refreshing Molds for Spring and Summer: Whether it's Mother's Day, a graduation, the Fourth of July, or just a family meal, the occasion will shine brighter with one of these dazzling molds as the star.
Savory Selections: When it's your turn to bring the appetizer or salad, turn to these refreshing ideas. These tempting Jell-O Gelatin dishes will impress the crowd. Observe below, the Savory Cheese Appetizer Mold. I really don't know about that one. Its just so opaque!
The creme-de-la-creme of Jell-O mold recipes are in the last pages of the book. The Classic Molds: Remember your mother's delicious gelatin creations? You can make Jell-O molds like hers with these traditional delights, revised or the way you cook today.
The Crown Jewel Dessert. No foodstuff can possibly be more unattractive than this loaf of opaque Jell-O, in which small cubes of other translucent Jell-Os are captured.
While purchasing this at the Jell-O Museum, Hye-Sung and I were marveling over this, the ten-layer Rainbow Ribbon Mold. The woman who assisted me in my purchase of The Joy of Jell-O Molds flipped through the book and pointed this one out especially to us, saying that it was very difficult to make but was very good. Hye-Sung and I were all wonderment. My hypothesis is that in LeRoy, New York, the birthplace of Jell-O, everyone makes Jell-O salads and that this woman had made every one of the dishes in The Joy of Jell-O Molds.
