Applesauce jello salad

A delicious jello salad, taken from "The Monterey Coast Guard Officers' Wives Club Cookbook." My sister-in-law was the president of the club which put that cookbook together.


(Serves 8)


  1. Place the candy and water in a pot. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the candy.
  2. Add jello powder and stir until it is dissolved.
  3. Stir in applesauce and ice cubes until ice cubes are melted.
  4. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until set (1 hour or more).


Substituting apple cider or apple juice for the water adds tremendous taste. We prefer homemade "chunky" style applesauce to processed commercial brands.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 10 minutes preparation, 1-3 hours to chill.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
