What to add, what to add....

The true downfall of many of the ever popular jello mold recipes often seemed to be that extra added ingredient. The recipe creator just felt that the recipe wasn’t truly complete until she added that one last special ingredient. That special ingredient tended to be a heaping portion of yuck.
This recipe calls for apple flavored gelatin, pineapple, maraschino cherries, walnuts. Okay, those things seem to go together acceptably. Why not stop there? No, we also need shredded carrots. Heading down a slippery slope, but still probably palatable enough to be choked down. Nope, it still needs something else. That one unusual ingredient to make it extra special. What would compliment the flavors of apple, cherry and walnut. Green peppers of course!
