This is a very simple, very versatile dessert I made over and over again for a number of summers (this is one of my antique recipes). There are a several variations for this dessert given at the end of the recipe which will surely inspire you to even more variations. You will need to drain the fruit that goes into this creamy chiffon mixture. Be sure to use the juice or syrup for part of the water when preparing the jello. The recipe came from an ad for Pet Milk. Cooking time is actually chilling time.
