Cover jello while refrigerating? [Moved from Site Talk Board]
when making jello from the package thingy, do you have to cover it when refrigerating?
Unless I have some uncovered foods (which is rare) in the frig. that might transfer flavors to the jello I don't generally cover it while it sets. I do, however, cover it when it goes back into the frig. for storage.
My ref is really a self defroster--it would dehydrate uncovered jello.
The reason I know is that I stumbled onto making jello with the cup of boiling water and with a cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice (using two types of lemons we have here, and that I had in over-abundance, but that are not sold in the US). Makes an incredible palate cleanser served on chinese soup spoons and thought to be something esoteric and sophisicated by guests.
