I remember so many picnics and holidays were we would all gather and my Aunt Marion would bring her famous rainbow jello. It looked so complicated to make and very time consuming so it took years before we attempted to make it. However, once we tried it on video we realized that this was not really all that hard to do and it brought back so many nice memories of special events with my mother’s side of the family.
What we did learn and is not mentioned in our original instructions from my aunt are that you will need to cool the sour cream mixture in between layers for at least 45 minutes or until firm, so that you can pour the next jello layer. If you do not, then you will have a melted mess on your hands. – I just made jello shots with a middle layer of white, and instead of using sour cream I used condensed sweetened milk and the clear gelatin. It makes the whole thing a lot sweeter, and for big jello salad like this it might make it too sweet. Let us know what you think!
