The Classic Tupperware Jel-Ring Mold & Recipes!

The Tupperware Jel-Ring is an old classic and still today, it is very popular with my Tupperware customers. I must admit, its also one of my favorite products too! I love to whip up tasty treats for my family to enjoy using the Jel-Ring mold.

When I do my Tupperware home parties, I am often asked for recipes that use the Jel-Ring Mold so I always carry along preprinted recipes and hand them out to my party guests.

The Tupperware Jel-Ring mold has a removable center and top seals which make unmolding it super easy. Did you know that you can also use it to make tasty & decorative ice rings by freezing beverages like punch or tea in the Jel-Ring Mold? What a great idea for any party! It is dishwasher safe & refrigerator safe and comes with Tupperware's Lifetime product guarantee.

Jel-Ring Mold Tip: When unmolding a gelatin salad from the Jel Ring Mold, lightly moisten the serving dish with water before unmolding the salad on the dish. This will allow you to easily position the gelatin salad to the center of the dish.

Now for some yummy recipes! (I promise, they all taste great and are really easy to make!)
