The Russian Tea Jell-O
Because you know you want the recipe:
1 box orange Jell-O
1 small can of mandarin orange slices in their own juice
1/4 c. of red hots
Make Jell-O according to directions EXCEPT: replace half of the cold water with the mandarin orange juice and melt the red hots in the boiling water. Stir in the jell-O powder and pour into your fancy mold. (Trace’s was not fancy…but that doesn’t mean yours can’t be). let the Jell-O partially set up then stir the mandarin slices into the mold. Bon Appetit!
Like I said in the episode, One jar of dill (not sweet pickles) pour our liquid, whisk into the pickle juice
1/2 c. sugar and one package of cherry Kool-aid. Pour as much of it back as you can and let sit, shaking occasionally, for 4 to 7 days.
