Fourth of July Jell-O

This colorful quick salad/dessert can be fixed by school-age children and looks so pretty served in a glass bowl.


6 to 8 servings


1 (3 ounce) package berry blue gelatin
2 cups boiling water, divided
1/2 cup cold water, divided
1 (3 ounce) package strawberry gelatin
1 (15 ounce) can pear halves, drained and cubed


In a large bowl, dissolve the berry gelatin in 1 cup boiling water. Stir in 1/4 cup cold water. Pour into an ungreased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Refrigerate until firm. Repeat with strawberry gelatin and remaining boiling and cold water.

When gelatin is set, cut into cubes. Just before serving, gently combine gelatin cubes and pears in a large glass bowl or individual dishes.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes + chilling
