Ingredients:

• 1 3 oz package of Orange Jello
• 1 cup boiling water
• 1 9-ounce can crushed pineapple with juice *
• 1 tsp lemon juice
• pinch of salt
• 1 cup grated carrots

Directions:
Empty gelatin into a small mixing bowl. Stir in the cup of boiling water.
Stir thoroughly until the gelatin has dissolved.
Add the pineapple (including juice), lemon juice, salt, and carrots.
Chill ’til thickened.

This recipe seems to be a variation of a one found in a 1920s Jello Recipe booklet The Greater Jell-o Recipe Book, called “Golden Glow Salad”, page 18, but with the substitution of Orange Jello for Lemon, and lemon juice for vinegar.

* Nope, can’t substitute fresh pineapple – fresh pineapple has an enzyme that will prevent Jello from jelling.
