This recipe comes from my mother-in-law and was served at holidays in my husband's childhood. The tradition was passed down and now we make it for our family's holidays. It is versatile and can use any type of Jello and any fruit. We usually choose whatever color Jello that seems appropriate for the holiday at hand and then whatever fruit would go well with that flavor Jello. Use whatever size packages of Jello and sour cream that fill the bowl you are going to use. This picture shows about twice as much sour cream as we usually use, but it is up to personal taste.
2 package jello, different colors (For example-cherry and blueberry for the 4th of July)
1 carton of sour cream
Compatible fruit (For example- Fresh or Frozen Blueberries for the Blueberry Jello and frozen Cherries for cherry Jello)
Prepare one package of Jello in a clear serving dish. Refrigerate until firm enough to add fruit. Add fruit and refrigerate until solid. Spread sour cream on top as a neat layer. Use a paper towel to wipe away any sour cream that is on the side not in the layer. Refrigerate. Meanwhile make a second package of Jello in another bowl. Refrigerate this Jello until ready for fruit. Add fruit and pour slowly into the other bowl on top of the sour cream. Refrigerate until firm.
