Ingredients
  • 2 envelopes gelatin
  • 1 cup hot water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • One 15-ounce can asparagus, drained and chopped

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

Directions

In a large bowl, add 1 cup cold water, sprinkle the gelatin on top and allow to dissolve. In the meantime, add the hot water and sugar to another bowl and stir together.
