before you use these recipes
SINCE this book was published, a wonderful change has been made
in Jell-O!
The Jell-O which you now buy at your grocer's in the six bright
new packages is radically improved—easier and quicker to make—
and even more delicious and rich in fruit flavor.

THE NEW JELL-O


dissolves in warm water
..•no boiling water necessary!
The Jell-O you buy now needs no boiling water to dissolve. It
melts like snowflakes in water only slightly hotter than lukewarm.

Five Big Advantages


1 Richer pure fruit by the new process... and
2 N o flavor steams a w a y . . . !
3 More tenderness...
4 Instant dissolving...no undissolved crystals...no waiting...you
put it in the refrigerator right away... and it's
5 The fastest-selling gelatin dessert in the world!

You can use New Jell-O in all the recipes in


this book. Only be sure to use w a r m w a t e r in-
stead of boiling w a t e r . (Directions on the back)
Prove that Boiling Water Steals Flavor
Take a whiff of the steam rising from old-fashioned flavored gelatin dis-
solved in boiling water. You know that flavor is flying away into the air.
Now try N E W JELL-O. Dissolved instantly in really warm water, no
steam escapes, carrying off flavor. Every bit of the juicy taste of the real
fruit stays in the finished dessert.
And think of the time saved! Other gelatin desserts must start to cool
and set at a temperature of 212° (boiling water heat). N E W JELL-O dis-
solved like snowflakes in water of 120°, 92 degrees cooler!
Of course, it starts to set quicker. Why, you can put it into the refriger-
ator right away!
You'll have your N E W JELL-O perfectly set—ready to serve—sooner
than any other gelatin dessert. Yet the result is so much better—so fresh
and true in flavor—so tender and meltingly luscious.
Yet JELL-O is still economically priced. You can use your favorite
recipes and any recipe in this book—there's no change except that you no
longer need to lose time and flavor through boiling water.
Get JELL-O at your grocer's today. Look for the bright packages, a dif-
ferent color for each flavor. Notice the patented inner seal, exclusive with
JELL-O—it keeps every flavor orchard-fresh.
Make some of these delicious dishes soon—and remember, you no
longer need to use boiling water!

want something
new and different? *

O N ' T despair. From the opening course to the


D last of a meal, Jell-O has suggestions!
Fruit cocktails that stay fresh and plump-fruited till
you serve them!
Entrees that look and taste different and (secret)
may be made with yesterday's left-overs!
Salads that are new departures in taste thrills!
Desserts that look like you've been hobnobbing with
famous chefs—yet they're so easy to make, you can
make them up while you're thinking about it!
And (how does this sound to your budget?) many
Jell-O dishes are so economical, you'll marvel! Sure to
turn out right, too. And—count on this—Jell-O dishes
have "looks"—gay, sparkling, quivery, luscious-look-

For measuring: Use standard measuring cup. Allow 1 pint (2 cups) liquid
to 1 package of Jell-O. Fruit juice may be used for all or part of liquid. One
package contains 8 level tablespoons of Jell-O.
For dissolving: Use exact amount of liquid specified. Liquid used to dis-
solve Jell-O must be boiling. It should be poured onto Jell-O and stirred
until Jell-O is entirely dissolved.
For molding: A metal mold chills more quickly than one of enamel or
earthenware. Turn Jell-O into mold. Chill in mold until firm.
For moldingfruits and vegetables: Chill dissolved Jell-O. When slightly thick-
ened, fold in fruits or vegetables. They will remain evenly suspended. In
general, 1 pint (2 cups) prepared fruits or vegetables are used with 1
package of Jell-O.
For chilling: Cool Jell-O before chilling to avoid wasting ice or raising the
temperature of the refrigerator. For quick chilling, use the freezing trays
of an automatic refrigerator. Or, place the mold of Jell-O in a pan of
cracked ice and salt, ice water, or snow.
For tray-chilled delicacies: Any Jell-O dish may be chilled quickly and
successfully in the freezing trays of an automatic refrigerator. These
Jell-O dishes should be thoroughly chilled—but never frozen. Proper
chilling takes but 13^ to 2 hours.
For whips: Chill dissolved Jell-O until cold and syrupy. Place in a bowl of
cracked ice or ice water and whip with rotary egg beater until fluffy and
thick like whipped cream.
For creams: Jell-O creams have a smooth velvety texture and are made
with much less cream than is usually required in this type of dessert.
Most of the creams in this book are made as follows:
Chill dissolved Jell-O until cold and syrupy; whip cream until
thick and shiny but not stiff and dull. Combine. The finished
product has a beautiful luster and fine, smooth, creamy texture.
If larger volume is desired and if a more porous, spongy texture is better
suited to the dish, the Jell-O and cream should be whipped separately
and then combined. In this case, chill dissolved Jell-O until cold and
syrupy, place in a bowl of cracked ice or ice water, and whip with rotary
egg beater until fluffy and thick like whipped cream. T h e n fold in whipped
cream.
For layered and decorated molds: Chill each layer of Jell-O until firm be-
fore adding another layer. Arrange design on layer of clear Jell-O. Cover
with enough cold liquid Jell-O to anchor design. Chill until design is set.
Add remaining Jell-O, pouring carefully against spoon to avoid disar-
ranging design.
For unmolding: When molded Jell-O is thoroughly chilled and firm, dip
mold up to the edge in warm—not hot—water. Hold a moment, remove,
and dry outside of mold. Place plate over mold and turn them over to-
gether. Raise side of mold slightly and give a sharp shake. Lift off mold.
NOTE: Raw pineapple cannot be used successfully with Jell-O. Use cooked or canned pineapple.
