There's always room for Jell-O: Official.

The latest news article is all about a favourite dessert of Lynn's and how to make it. As one could expect, taste takes a back seat to sliding down the gullet right quick like owing to the depressing reality that is Lynn more than likely having a difficult time swallowing things. As a person gets older, this becomes a thing.

For Lynn’s recent birthday, her daughter, Katie, made her a batch of ribbon Jello, pictured. We thought we’d share the recipe (below):

Ribbon Jello

•4 packages (3 oz) Jello, for example Orange, Lemon, Lime and Strawberry
•6 envelopes Knox gelatin
•1 can Eagle Brand condensed milk
•4 ¾ cups boiling water
•¼ cup water
•Pam spray

Prepare Milk Mixture:

Prepare milk mixture first and cool:
1.Dissolve 2 envelopes of Knox gelatin in ¼ cup cold water
2.Add ¾ cups boiling water, stir until gelatin has dissolved
3.Combine with 1 can condensed milk, divide into 3 parts and cool. Make sure this stays liquid; if it starts to jell, but the bowl of milk mixture into a bath of hot water and stir until it’s liquid

Prepare Jello:
1.Mix each box of Jello separately with 1 envelope of Knox gelatin
2.Add 1 cup boiling water to each Jello mixture, stir constantly until gelatin dissolves. Keep the Jello mixtures liquid as well.

Making the Ribbon:
1.Pour 1 flavour of Jello into a 9″ x 13″ (sprayed with Pam) pan and refrigerate for 15 minutes
2.Pour 1 part milk mixture over first layer of Jello. Refrigerate for 15 minutes
3.Pour on another layer of Jello mixture, alternate with milk mixture. Repeat, refrigerating for 15 minutes after each layer of Jello. (Example: orange, milk, lime, milk, lemon, milk, strawberry)
4.Serve in diamond-shaped pieces:

If what I fear about Lynn is correct, the next recipe will be "how to spice up instant potatoes by using soup stock."
