Try something new by making your Jello in a Pineapple Can!
This isn’t the first time I’ve tried making this Jello in a Pineapple Can. When I was first married my best friend told me she likes to make lime jello in the pineapple can. She also told me she serves it as a side dish for dinner over cottage cheese! Such a great idea. This time I made it I tried a few variations.
Below you can see how my Jello in a Pineapple Can turned out. Mine did not turn out like the ad, but still so pretty!
Would you try this? Each 3 ounce box of Jello will do two 20 ounce cans of pineapple rings. I saved the drained pineapple juice as a beverage for my daughter, and there was a lot since we ended up doing 12 cans for this recipe shoot. I hope you enjoy this fun little recipe. Be sure to see the video in the recipe card below to see how easy it is done!
Jello in a Pineapple Can
- 3 oz. box jello (any flavor)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup cold water
- 2 20 oz. cans pineapple slices, drained very well
optional filling ideas:
- mandarin oranges
- maraschino cherries
- Note- One 3 ounce box of jello will do two cans of pineapple rings.
- Drain the pineapple slices very well.
- Mix the cup boiling water with the jello and stir until the jello is dissolved. Add the cup of cold water.
- If you are adding mandarin oranges or cherries to the center of the pineapple do this now. Add enough to fill it to the top, I packed them in. Pour over the jello.
- Place the cans into the fridge. Let chill for 6 hour or longer. I did overnight.
- To remove the pineapple and jello from the cans. Flip the can over onto a plate and use a can opener to open the end. Push the pineapple and jello out, push it out toward the end of the can that has less of a lip on it.
- Serve and enjoy!
