This recipe takes me back to my childhood! Two of my aunts made really good Jello recipes that they brought to family reunions in the summer and to Christmas parties. They tasted so good and looked pretty as mold shapes. My mom made great Jello too, but she didn't use a mold. I am fascinated by the addition of buttermilk to this recipe. How does it taste? I would like to make this for Easter, but I don't think I have a Jello mold anymore.

I think our grandmothers must be related!! My grandmother always made this recipe at Easter! She used orange jello instead of the raspberry jello. She said she liked the orange color for spring and Easter. Then, at Thanksgiving she used strawberry jello and at Christmas she made it with lime jello. All of the other ingredients were exactly the same. The one thing that she changed for summer parties or family gatherings was instead of the jello mold, she would put it in a rectangle pan and freeze it! Yes, freeze it! Then, she would pre-cut squares and place the square on a piece of lettuce and then on a salad plate. Very fancy for us! Thoughts?

This recipe is such a blast from the past! My aunt would make this every Thanksgiving and Christmas. My cousin is an absolute fiend for "pink stuff." You might think that it looks odd, if you've never had it, but it's actually really nice. It's kind of creamy and strawberry flavoured and the pineapple gives it a tangy and tropical twist. It's great as a side dish at the holidays, or as a bit of dessert. It's really easy to make too.

This recipe takes me back in time. My mother used to make a similar dessert but in place of the butter milk and Cool Whip, should would beat two egg whites into stiff peaks and when the jello was cooled she would fold the egg whites in. Pineapple tidbits gave it a nice tropical flare.

This Polly's pink stuff sure takes me back to the time when we used to have green jello with celery molds on our Thanksgiving table. I don't know if anybody actually liked it but they ate it. However this version seems to be updated and has peiqued my interest. With Cool Whip and butter milk in it it must have a tangy creamy taste to the strawberry flavor. And since I'm an adventurous cook, I would like to try it. I'll forgo the molds though, and cut it into little squares. Perhaps a new generation of kids will start this as their own tradition but this time people will actually like it!
