Jello is a healthy food, easy digestible, low in salt, fat free and energy boosting.

It is made with gelatin and other ingredients.

Gelatin is made from collagen that is in meat bones.

It is a protein, though not a complete protein, because it lacks some necessary amino acids.

This gelatin is what causes your homemade chicken soups to have a jelly like consistency when they are cold.

By the way, this protein it is the only food from an animal source that is not a complete protein.

The addition of vegetables and fruits, rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, gives you an abundance of essential nutrition and health benefits.

Jello dishes range from the basic recipes found on the package or box to desserts, to molded dishes, whipped cream mousses, salads, cakes like Punchbowl Cake Recipe, and pies.

Jello dishes can be served as a salad or a dessert.

For a salad, serve it on a bed of lettuce in on a salad plate, topped with mayonnaise dressing.

For a dessert serve the same dish topped with whipped cream and perhaps, nuts.

NOTE: Some fruits like fresh pineapple, contain an enzyme that breaks down the protein gelatin and prevents it from "jelling".

Canned pineapple can be used because cooking deactivates the enzyme. See jello label for a list of other fruits that will not set (gel).

Congealed Jello should not be left out of the refrigerator very long because it will loose it's shape if molded.

If it is in a warm environment too long, it will melt.

When needing to keep it cool for extended times for serving or transporting, use special gel packs or ice packs.
