    My mom used to make this, only she added chopped pecans, too. It was one of my favorites. It was a staple when she made her chicken and dumplings.

    My favorite of Grandma’s jello. Don’t use frozen pineapple either. Learned it the hard way, drank our salad.

    I learned to make this dish as a kid growing up in America’s Jell-O capital Utah in the 1950s. The standard flavor from the 1950s for this dish was orange Jell-O. For the texture, the carrots should be ground with a meat grinder, and not grated. This concoction was standard fare everywhere, at home,at church suppers, and at restaurants.

    No salt or vinegar required. Use the canned pineapple juice as part of the liquid for the jello

    How much does this make? Hard to tell from the picture! What size mold is that?
