This reminds me of a dish that a little old lady would prepare for us at our tea parties. She would try to teach the young girls in the neighborhood culture and invite us over and serve us and have proper conversations. At times she would serve something reminiscent of this recipe. I have not thought of Miss Martha in years. Thanks for the memories.

Four ingredients make a whole dessert! Really! Well, I have to admit that alone is tempting enough to make this dessert. However, the addition of buttermilk? I have been wrong before so I will give it a go.

This strawberry jello looks awesome. I must admit that the flavor combination seems a little different but I'm willing to give this a try. I do like crushed pineapple and prefer things to have a bit of texture so I think I will like it. Strawberry is also a nice flavor so I can imagine this to be sweet but tart.....yummm

In my mind these ingredients should not go together at all...but the picture looks so beautiful it's drool-worthy. lol How you came up with such a yummy looking jello dessert is beyond me but I'm so happy I found it and can't wait to try it! Is it like a fruit filled mousse texture or more on the jello side?

This is a great dessert to bring to any function because a lot of people like jello and this is a step above. I have seen this at places before but never realized that it was made with milk and buttermilk to be exact and real pineapples. I may have to try this. I can see making the orange jello and using oranges in it. These directions are so easy to follow and quick to make and there is a video to make it even easier to follow.

I don't know why the other reviewers are talking about raspberry jello. This recipe has strawberry jello. Does jello come in raspberry flavor? If so, I want some! I love old-fashioned jello recipes. My mom was queen of the jello recipes. She could make the most amazing jello, and load it up with fruit. I could never get mine to turn out like hers did. I can't wait to make this recipe.

Raspberry jello is SO GOOD! This jello ring is great for summer because it's so fruity )

This recipe looks right up my alley. I love raspberry Jell-o!
