BACK PORCH JELLO
Mrs. Miles says "Back porch Jello" is a
healthy treat that prepares in little
"Back porch jello" is a healthy
treat that prepares in little time - cherry or lime
tastes divine! If wheat is the staff of life,
consider gelatin as the glue that allows the body
joints to flex, bones to remain sturdy, and that
keeps the body upright and pain free.
Loss of cartilage between
vertebrae and bodily joints becomes a serious
condition as people age. To counteract the loss of
cartilage resulting in bone grinding upon
uncushioned bone, with accompanying pain and loss
of mobility, your diet must be supplemented with
natural gelatin on a daily basis.
Below you will find my "Jello
Jar Mix" for non refrigerated gelatin. It works
well for "now" in a refrigerator, of course!
- 1 - 6 ounce box of favorite flavor Jello (or
store "Brand X")
- 3 - packets of Knox unflavored gelatine
- 3 - tablespoons sugar, honey or white corn
- 2 - tablespoons lemon juice (reconstituted is
- 3 - cups boiling water
- 2 - cups cold water
Pour the 2 cups of cold water
into a large bowl or 3 quart pot. Cut open the 3
packets of Knox Gelatine and mix well with the cold
water. Let sit for 5 minutes while the tea kettle
-- it's not "canned" Jello; Mrs. Miles
simply uses wide mouth canning jars to make
Back Porch Jello -- they are easy to carry
and keep covered and clean.
Add: 6 ounce box of Jello to
bowl. Pour in 3 cups of boiling water, stirring
well. Mix in 2 tablespoons lemon juice and 3
tablespoons sugar, stirring until blended. Set
aside until slightly cool.
Pour into two wide mouth quart
jars, with lids. Place in the coolest part of your
house or back porch for the gel to set.
My jello set nicely overnight in
a 65 F pantry. Of course jello will set faster in
