Make it Easy
Instead of cutting off the bottoms of the melon halves, place melon shells in small bowls on a tray for easy transportation to the refrigerator.
Gelatin Success Tip
To make JELL-O Gelatin that is clear and uniformly set, be sure the gelatin is completely dissolved in the boiling water before adding the cold liquid. Stirring with a rubber spatula will help ensure that all the crystals are dissolved.
Fresh Fruits to Avoid in Gelatin Recipes
Since fresh or frozen pineapple, papaya, kiwi, figs, guava and gingerroot all contain enzymes that prevent gelatin from setting, never use them in gelatin recipes. But you can use any canned fruits or juices since the canning process kills this enzyme.
