I always like sweet taters with ham so maybe some jazzed up version of those.
900 cups of Jello? Try this:
2 (3 ounce) packages lemon Jell-O
2 (3 ounce) packages lime Jell-O
2 (3 ounce) packages strawberry Jell-O
2 (3 ounce) packages orange Jell-O
24 ounces evaporated milk (3/4 cup for each flavour of jello used)
(You can use any variety of jello you want and as many as you want, but these just seem to go well together)
Mix 1 box of lemon jello with 3/4 cup boiling water and 3/4 cup cold water. Stir well and pour into a 9x13 tupperware container.
Let set a little while.
The next layer consists of the other box of lemon jello, but this time add 3/4 cup boiling water, let that sit until it's a bit cooler, add 3/4 cup evaporated milk, and mix together.
Pour onto the 1st layer in tupperware pan (that gives it a slightly different colour and taste).
Continue in this fashion with the each additional flavour of jello.
It should end up looking like this:
I haven't tried it yet but have been looking for a way to use the endless amount of Jello that has accumulated in my kitchen. It's also very pretty!
