Most of my families “secret recipes” come from the back of Cream of Mushroom soup cans. This one is a rare exception – it is from the back of a Jell-o packet. The resulting Jell-o is one of my favorite things to eat at the holidays! It is delisious on it’s own or with turkey + ham. I would include a picture, but it isn’t a very photogenic recipe – so please enjoy this Norman Rockwell painting instead.
