Here is a recipe that has been used. The paper is spotted with spills and splashes, and several swipes from a dish rag used to wipe up whatever it was that spilled. I think I might have had something like this at some point, but the jello salad thing seems to have passed out of vogue for the time being.
Deanno’s Cranberry Salad (makes lots)
1 orange unpeeled
1 16 oz can whole cranberries
1 16 oz can crushed pineapple
1 pkg cherry/raspberry jello (lg)
2 cups liquid (juice & water)
1 cup pecans/walnuts
Grind orange. Combine with cranberries & pineapple. Drain, measure liquid. Bring 1 cup liquid to boil, add jello & dissolve. Cool, add rest of liquid. Mix with fruit & nuts. Pour into cups mold, refrigerate until firm.
I love that you share these just as they are – the food stains, handwriting and personal stationery makes them really personal.
