What kid doesn’t like Jello or applesauce? Our little guys are big fans of both. I think that’s why their Grandma’s Raspberry Jello Applesauce has become one of their favorite side dishes! This is also a favorite of my husband, from his childhood, he remembers it as a regular at his Grandma’s house for special meals. Raspberry Jello Applesauce is an easy-to-make sweet applesauce dish that is sure to excite everyone around your table this holiday!
2 c. thick smooth applesauce
1 small pkg raspberry jello
1 t. grated orange rind
3 T. orange juice
1 – 7oz. bottle carbonated lemon-lime soda
1. Heat the applesauce, orange juice, and soda to good boil.
2. Dissolve Jello in the hot liquid; stir well.
3. Pour into a 9×9 pan and chill overnight. (double the recipe for a 9×13 pan)
*Note: You can adjust the ‘stiffness’ by adjusting the amount of Jello added to the recipe: less Jello results in a more ‘smooth applesaucey’ texture, while more Jello results in a ‘stiffer’ texture.
