Do not use fresh pineapple in this recipe; it will prevent the gelatin from setting.
2 (3-ounce) packages lemon flavored gelatin
2 cups boiling water
1 cup ice water
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups grated carrots
Empty gelatin into a small mixing bowl. Stir in boiling water thoroughly until the gelatin dissolves.
Stir in 1 cup ice water, the pineapple with its juice, lemon juice and salt. Refrigerate until gelatin begins to thicken, then gently fold in the grated carrots.
Pour mixture into an 11-by-7-inch pan or mold of choice. Refrigerate several hours until firm. Cut into squares or dip the bottom of the mold in hot water and invert onto a serving platter, shaking firmly to release the gelatin. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
