I have made this over the years and always receive rave reviews. I am taking this for a pot-luck 4th of July BBQ next month. Please try this recipe.
I've been making this jello recipe for years (it first was published in TOH in the late 1990s, I believe, but I've lost my copy of the recipe and just make it from memory). I agree that the recipe is better with a 20 oz. can of pineapple. I don't usually add the pecans. We like either sugar free orange or lime jello and use fat-free whipped topping. My kids love this recipe (so do all the adults I've served it to!). Delicious!
8 1/2 ounces of crushed pineapple does not provide enough liquid to dissolve the gelatin and not enough pineapple. Try a 20 oz. can instead and add 1 cup of pecans rather than 1/4 cup. Otherwise, it is an excellant recipe.
