Once this done,remove it from the stove and allow it to cool.

Finally,combine the sugar-juice mixture, 2 cans of evaporated milk,the dissolved gelatin mixture using an electric beater on high for 6-7 minutes. this will yield an frothy mixture. Pour into a glass dish and then gently drop in the crushed pineapple. Once this is done, garnish with crushed cashewnuts or nuts of your choice.
Keep this in the refrigerator(not freezer) for almost 2 hours or completely set. The setting time may vary from refrigerator to refrigerator due to the coldness setting in each fridge.Cut and serve with any fruit or just enjoy by itself to satisfy the sweet tooth in you. Njoy!!!
Make sure you use Gelatin and not Jello.Gelatine is different from Jello. Gelatin (also gelatine, from French gélatine) is a translucent, colourless,tasteline substance which is mostly used for setting dessets. You can look for this in the same aisle as your Jello in your favourite grocery store
Keep the cans of evaporated milk 1 hr in the freezer prior to making this pudding so that the milk gets a little solid and is not too watery. Do not use condensed milk for this recipe
Each Knoxx gelatin package contains 4 packets of gelatin. Use 3 of those packets for this recipe.
