Pineapple "Jiggles"

4 Hr

Imagine carving canned pineapple right in front of the kids! Sound crazy? Well, this is a sure way to put smiles on those little faces, and magic on your table.

What You'll Need

  • 2 (20 ounce each) cans pineapple slices
  • 1 (4-serving size) package lime-flavor gelatin mix

What to Do

  1. Open pineapple cans cleanly and drain pineapple syrup, saving syrup for another use and leaving slices in cans.
  2. Prepare gelatin in a glass bowl according to package directions. Let cool at room temperature about 20 minutes.
  3. Pour half of gelatin into first can of pineapple slices. Place handle of a wooden spoon into center of slices to loosen slices so that gelatin is able to flow between them. Repeat with second can and remaining gelatin. Chill 4 to 5 hours, until well set.
  4. When ready to serve, carefully cut open bottom of each can and run a butter knife around edge of each can; push out pineapple "roll" and cut between each slice. Arrange slices on a platter by themselves or place around cooked ham, chicken, or other dishes.


Don't care for lime-flavored gelatin? Try it with any flavor you want.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This is a great idea. Preparing gelatin with fruit is always a challenge for me. You have to allow the gelatin to firm before mixing in the fruit if you really want the fruit to be evenly distributed. So I either have just plain gelatin with fruit on the bottom gelatin, so I love this recipe. Guess work, gone!

Cool idea. Making gelatin right in the can. I no longer have young ones in the house, but I do have a husband that is young at heart and I know he will get a kick out of this fruit recipe.

This recipe gave me the following inspiration. Instead of using the cans that the pineapple came in, I used a silicone loaf pan and orange Jell-O. After it set up, it came out easily and was a beauty! Very refreshing on a warm day.
