Recipe for Making Jello Salad with Flat Soda Pop

After last Friday's post, I received a couple of emails requesting a recipe for making jello with flat soda. So, here's my best estimate of what I used.

Jello Using Flat Soda Pop

3 teaspoons of unflavored gelatin
1/4  cup cold water
2 cups of flat fruity soda (I used orange soda, but I also have a half bottle of flat fruit punch soda waiting for more jello)
2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
3 tablespoons of granulated sugar (to taste)

In a small dish, softened the gelatin in the water until all particles of gelatin are translucent. Once softened, melt the gelatin/water in the microwave in short bursts (15-20 seconds) until it is melted and liquid.

Stir the melted gelatin into a bowl with the soda, citrus juice, and sugar. Continue stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. Chill for 4 hours or until set.

When mixing fruit into jello for a salad, I partially chill the jello before adding the chopped fruit. The fruit seems to remains suspended in the jello better if its (the jello) is more gloppy when stirring in the fruit.
