Time to bring back a classic treat! We'll show you how to make a timeless Jell-O mold, plus tips on getting just-right layers and how to remove the gelatin from the mold.


  • 1 package (6 ounces) strawberry gelatin
  • 1-1/2 cups boiling water
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen, sweetened strawberries, thawed
  • 1 can (8 ounces) unsweetened, crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Fresh strawberries to garnish (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in water. Add strawberries and pineapple. Strain, reserving liquid and fruit. Set aside 1 cup of the liquid at room temperature.
  2. Pour fruit and remaining liquid into a 5-cup ring mold or 9-in. square pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.
  3. Whisk sour cream and reserved liquid; pour over top of gelatin. Cover and refrigerate until set.
  4. Slice and place on individual plates, or unmold onto a serving platter. Garnish with lettuce and strawberries if desired.
