I had an apricot Jello-O left from making apricot jelly from jigs last year so I set out looking for a simple recipe for apricot Jell-O. I found I had Margie Calloway’s Jell-O salad. I didn’t have any marshmallows, but made it anyway and it is Gooder’n Syrup, even without marshmallows.

• 2 packages Apricot Jell-O
• 2 cups boiling water
• 1 1/2 cups cool water
• 1 #2 can crushed pineapple
• 2 sliced bananas
• 1 cup miniature marshmallows

Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water, add cool water and set aside to slightly thicken. Add bananas, marshmallows and drained pineapple ( Save the juice to topping.) Let set in refrigerator until firm.


• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/2 Tablespoon Flour
• 3 ounces cream cheese
• 1 egg beaten
• 1/2 cup pineapple juice
• 10 ounce cool whip

Mix sugar, flour and egg. Add pineapple juice, cook until thickened. Add softened cream cheese. Cool, then fold in Cool Whip. Spread over Jell-O. It truly is Gooder’n Syrup. Von
