Ok, I know there are people who don’t like Jell-O. But when I heard there was a whole week committed to Jell-O, I had to investigate. It has been said that Jell-O is "America’s Most Famous Dessert." But I was shocked to see all the ways Jell-O is used. There are Jell-O jigglers, Jell-O parfaits, Jell-O in cakes, salads, lime margarita smoothies, and even Jell-O shots. And, get this…there is even Jell-O wrestling! What a thought.
A couple of months ago, I came across a cookbook at an estate sale called The New Joys of Jell-O. The copyright was 1975. The first recipe to catch my eye was one for "Jellied Gazpacho." I had to have that book!
