This recipe came from a magazine back in the 50's. It is always asked for at family holiday dinners. It is sweet and tart and a bit unusual.

This was perfect to accompany my Easter ham. Super easy with a light, refreshing flavor. To make it diabetic friendly for my DH, I used sugar free Jello and mandarin oranges in a Light syrup. Thanks, OhMyStars! Everyone loved it.
