You can do many variations with this recipe using fresh, canned or frozen fruit. Just let your imagination go. I have used canned peaches, raspberries, blackberries and various combinations of fruit. I use a large cast iron skillet but you could use a 9 x 13 pan.

Pour Jello into boiling water, don't pour water over jello

Pour Jello into boiling water, don't pour water over jello

Maybe it's different now but whenever I used Jello, I usually at least used the equivalent of the large package. I'd empty the contents into a dry bowl while heating up the water then pour the water over the Jello. I noticed I'd get a sticky residue on the bottom, both B4 and after it jelled, it would stick to the spoon also and not dissolve completely. Now I empty the Jello into the hot water that's just been poured into a heatproof bowl and start stirring immediately. Do the 2 min.
