70s Cheery Fruit Mold

This recipe is from a 1970s Kraft Foods recipe leaflet.

8 1/4-oz can pineapple chunks
3-oz pkg lime flavored gelatin
1 cup boiling water

Drain pineapple, reserving syrup. Dissolve lime gelatin in the boiling water. Add syrup and enough cold water to measure 1/2 cup. Chill until partially thickened. Fold in the pineapple chunks. Pour mixture into a 2-quart serving bowl; chill until almost set.

3-oz pkg lemon gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 cup whipped cream or topping
1/2 cup Kraft real mayonnaise

Dissolve lemon gelatin in boiling water; cool. Combine the whipped cream and mayonnaise; gradually add in the lemon gelatin mixture. Chill until partially thickened. Pour over the lime layer. Chill until almost set.

11-oz can mandarin orange segments
3-oz pkg raspberry flavored gelatin
1 cup boiling water

Drain the orange segments, reserving 1/2 cup of the syrup. Dissolve raspberry gelatin in boiling water; stir in the syrup. Chill until partially thickened. Fold in orange segments. Pour over lemon layer. Chill until set. Garnish with additional orange segments and mint.

Note: May be used as dessert. Add a dollop of whipped cream to each serving then top with the orange segments and mint.
