Bring Back the Jell-O Days

Yesterday's 70's Sunday Gourmet Dinner brought to mind a dessert that was popular few decades earlier - Jell-O. While Jell-O today is associated with post hospitalization food, or at best cafeteria or all-inclusive desserts, it definitely had its days. There is no reason why we can't bring back the elegance of Jell-O, so join me in making, celebrating and promoting Jell-O.

My first attempt at this was a mixture of raspberry and strawberry Jell-O chilled in champagne glasses. Bananas were added to half of the glasses. Elegant, tasty, and probably healthy in its own way. 

Anyone knows the origin of gelatin? Find out at Jell-O Wikipedia.
