Reminiscing: Knox Gelatine Salads, Desserts, Pies, Candies

You all know how much I love gelatin-based recipes. Away we go!

Seriously, the first page in, and they're talking about things like peptic ulcers and "reducing." I certainly don't doubt that these recipes will inspire people to "reduce."

Yummy vegetable salad--the first photo in the book:

In addition to creative recipes involving gelatin and strangely styled photographs, this cookbook also offers tag lines like the ones below. "Perfection Salad--How the men go for this one!"

Here we have the recipe for "Winter Salad--Grand sandwich filling--excellent for diabetic diet!" This is a combination of gelatin, American cheese, stuffed olives, celery, and green pepper along with whipped cream or evaporated milk. The only way that this would be excellent for anything is if you threw it at your worst enemy.

Yummy fruit salad--I just can't tell you how much I would love to dig right in.

Even better, one of my favorites--"Jellied Waldorf Salad." Ugh.

If the Waldorf salad isn't for you, perhaps you would like to try some "Coffee Jelly."

Yeah, I just bet men would go for that Perfection Salad. THAT'S why I'm single, because I haven't made Perfection Salad yet!
