  1. Can we have a photo later? I have never heard of this dessert. I don't use gelatine but the vegetarian equivalent should work.

  3. EC; I don't have any photos of this, I just copied the recipe from my cookbook. I haven't made it yet this summer and have never had reason to take photos before. I don't see why the vegetarian equivalent of gelatine shouldn't work.

    Kelley@magnetoboldtoo; I had no idea this was in school cookbooks, I copied it originally from my falling-apart Nursing Mothers Association cookbook.

  4. Sounds fabulous! I must have led a deprived life - I didn't make this in school and haven't been a nursing mother so don't have their cookbook!!

    Hope you're having a great weekend!

  5. Red Nomad; The cookbook is available through the Nursing Mother's Association, you probably don't have to be a nursing mother to get one.....I got mine back in 1981 when I was a nursing mother.

  6. Or you can cheat and buy an orange jelly, semi set it and add whipped Carnation evaporated milk, re-refrigerate....was a fave when we were kids.

  7. Baino; does it separate as it sets into a jelly bottom and fluffy topping?

  8. Orange Fluff? I have one snoozing in her pillow at my feet right now and, believe me, I get a 'fluff' every ten minutes or so!
