“My mom made this, minus the apple chunks, when we were sick or as a special treat. The applesauce adds a great texture, kids love it, and if they don't like fruit, they'll still usually eat this! In fact, without the chunks or the cinnamon, it's a great treat for toddlers. I make it with cinnamon applesauce and the apple chunks as a side for holiday meals.”

Directions

  1. Dissolve gelatin into boiling water in a LARGE bowl (you're going to want the room when you add the other ingredients to prevent splashing).
  2. Add applesauce all at once.
  3. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  4. Pour into an 8 by 8 casserole or a shallow dish, and cover.
  5. Refrigerate until partially set (about 1 1/2 hours is good).
  6. Stir in apple chunks, if desired.
  7. Refrigerate an additional 1 1/2 to 3 hours, until set.
  8. This recipe will not set quite as firm as traditional gelatin.
