The dangers of using uncooked fruit in a Jell-O mold.
Fresh fruit releases water and prevents Jell-O from setting properly.
Canned fruit is a better option as it has already been cooked and has less water content.
Frozen fruit can also be used as it has been blanched and has less water content.
Using fresh fruit can result in a runny and unappetizing Jell-O mold.
Fresh fruit can also cause the Jell-O to separate and become watery.
If you must use fresh fruit, try to remove as much moisture as possible by patting it dry.
Using canned or frozen fruit can also add extra flavor and texture to your Jell-O mold.
Experiment with different types of canned or frozen fruit to find your favorite combination.
