Jell-O in Jars

Dear creative cooks,

Living in California, we don't have much in the way of dishes right now.  All of my beautiful trifle bowls, stemware, and elegant bowls are packed snugly in storage awaiting a permanent duty station.  So, we make do with what we have ... and that is really fun!

I wanted to make some jell-O because you know how much Mr H loves it, but we didn't even have decent cups to hold it in.  The solution?

Canning jars!

Make trifles, layered puddings, jell-Os, and just about anything layered and pretty in the wide-mouth pint or half-pint jars (truthfully, a pint of jell-O is just way too much ... neither of us could ever finish a whole one and I would recommend using the half-pints for more realistic serving sizes!).

What other layered delicacies would you suggest for these jars?

Layers upon layers,

Mrs H
