Can’t say I was terribly excited about making this recipe. Jell-O has never really been my “thing.” The texture is weird, and I never got into it, even as a kid.
While the kettle was boiling water, I poured the Jell-O package contents into a big mixing bowl and drained the juice out of a can of mandarin orange slices and crushed pineapple. I also rinsed the grapes and measured out how many were needed.
Once the kettle started whistling, the boiling water was poured over the Jell-O sugar contents and mixed thoroughly.
Cold water was added next, followed by the canned mandarin orange, canned crushed pineapple, and fresh grapes.
I didn’t have a large glass bowl to put the Jell-O in, so instead I poured it into individual bowls before letting it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours.
I really don’t like the texture of Jell-O, and the fruit chunks made the texture even worse, so I had a hard time getting this down. That being said, the flavor wasn’t terrible, though it was too artificially sweet for me.
None of the steps are difficult for this recipe. Mostly it’s just combining and mixing ingredients, though there is measuring, draining, and boiling involved.
You’ll need to purchase lime Jell-O mix, a can of mandarin orange segments, a can of crushed pineapple, and seedless grapes.
