Mom's Funeral Salad

My Mom makes the best buttermilk jell-o salad and everytime there is a funeral at our church they call her to make the jell-o for the repast!!!! We've started calling this 'funeral salad', but we make it at home all the time as well!! As for the fruit in the recipe, Zaar wouldn't let me say smashed but that's what we do with the mandarin oranges, raspberries, strawberries, etc. We usually dice the pears, peaches and more firm fruits, Hope you'll get the drift here.

    The directions say to heat the pineapple, juice and jello in a saucepan. However there is no "juice" listed in the ingredients. There does not appear to be enough liquid in a can of crushed pineapple to be sufficient to mix with the box of jello. Normally a 6oz box of jello requires 2 cups of liquid.
