For some reason I seem to be on a salad theme recently.  All these old recipes are in boxes and big manila envelopes.  I post them as a get one out to use it or just post the next one in the box.  Seems to have been a lot of salad ones lately.  Tomorrow I will try to post something besides a salad!

A #2 1/2 can is the regular-sized can of fruit although the way the manufacturers keep cutting back on size to trick us, they might have held a little more.

1 #2 1/2 can apricots, cut up
1 #2 1/2 can crushed pineapple
2 cups hot water
2 packages (4-serving sizes) orange gelatin
1 cup juice (from apricots and pineapple combined for 1 cup)
3/4 cup miniature marshmallows

Drain the cans of fruit saving juices.  Combine the juices.  Prepare the gelatin using the hot water and the cup of combined juices; let cool.  Add the fruit and the marshmallows.  Pour into a ring mold.

1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 egg, beaten
1 cup remaining fruit juices
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup cream
3/4 cup grated American cheese

In a saucepan cook the sugar, flour, egg, and juices over low heat until thickened. Remove from the heat and add butter and cool.  Whip the cream and mix with the cooled sugar mixture.  Spread on jello and top with cheese.
