Does anyone know of a recipe with orange Jello, crushed pineapple, and either whole eggs, separated or egg whites? I know this is an old recipe, maybe from the 30's or 40's. My Mom had it handwritten and it was called "Heavenly Delight". It was made in an 8x8 pan and I believe you cooked it on top of the stove and then mixed it together. It was fluffy and was an interesting combination. My Mom can't find the recipe either. Thanks for any help.

Are you sure it was eggs and not marshmallows? I have a friend who makes an ambrosia "salad" with crushed pineapple, little marshmallows, pecan pieces, jello and i think cherries. When combined with the pineapple juice, the marshmallows have a frothy consistency, kind of like the texture of loosely scrambled eggs. Hope this helps.
I googled it for you and you are listed! How Funny! I would go to www.cooks.com if it's a recipe they have it. I wish you luck, but I am thinking the other poster might have been right on.
I found this via the 'net, eggwhites are listed at the bottom:
HOW TO WHIP JELLO GELATIN
One of the easiest things you can do to change the texture and appearance of Jell-O Gelatin -- just whip it until thick and fluffy. Prepare Jell-O Gelatin (any fruit flavor) as directed on package and chill until very thick. Then beat with rotary beater or electric mixer until mixture is fluffy and thick -- about double in volume results in the best eating quality and flavor.
To shorten the chilling and beating times, chill the gelatin until slightly thickened. Then place the bowl of gelatin in another bowl of ice and water before starting to beat.
Pour whipped gelatin into molds or shallow pan, or add cubes of Jell-O Gelatin (page 85) or fruit and pour into molds. Chill until firm. Unmold, cut in squares, or spoon into serving dishes; serve with fruit or a custard sauce, if desired. A 3-oz. package makes about 4 cups, or 4 or 5 servings; a 6-oz. package makes about 8 cups, or 8 to 10 servings.
Snows: Prepare whipped Jell-O Gelatin, adding unbeaten egg whites to the thickened gelatin before starting to beat. Use I or 2 egg whites for a 3-oz. package Jell-O Gelatin, or 2 or 3 egg whites for a 6- oz. package.
Could this be it?
I found your salad recipe in an Eastern Star Cookbook from the 1950's. It is:
1 Box Jello (any flavor)
1 C hot water
4 egg yolks
1/2 bup sugar
1 small can crushed pineapple
4 egg whites
2 Tbsp. Sugar
Dissolve jello in hot water and cool. Beat egg yolks and sugar. Add piniapple. Cook in double boiler until thick. Cool. Beat egg whites and sugar. Stir all together and place in a mold. (It will separate into two layers as it sets.) Refrigerate.

None of these are the recipe I'm looking for. It does not separate into layers, or that one would be it.
Was it more of a dessert, or a salad...or something else? Were there any other ingredients that you can remember? I've got some old cookbooks I'll dig through, and my mom has an old (60s-70s) Jello cookbook, so maybe it's in there. I'll keep ya posted!
This was a dessert. I am going to see if the one that separates is it and maybe you just have to mix it together more to get it the way I remember. Thanks for all the help.
Funny, I was just telling someone this morning about this wonderful dessert my grandmother made, jello with egg whites whipped in, with a custard made from the yolks over the top. The tip in one of these recipes about adding the whites to the thickened jello before whipping might be the trick I was looking for. Good luck with yours!
