Food Friday: Mom's Strawberry Jello

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  You probably are enjoying left-overs today.  
This recipe is one my mom would always make for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Now it is my family tradition to have for those holidays.   So you are getting a "family secret" recipe today.  Woohoo!  It may seem like a interesting combination of ingredients, but if you should try it.  It is ohh so good!

Mom's Strawberry Jello
1 - 6 oz. package strawberry jello
2 Cups boiling water
1 - 10 oz. package frozen strawberries
1 - 8 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
2 bananas, diced
1 Cup sour cream (yes, that's right, sour cream)

Add jello to boiling water and stir until jello is dissolved.  Stir in frozen strawberries.  Add pineapple and banana. 
Pour half of the mixture into a square dish (8x8 or 9x9).  Place in the refrigerator to set.  About 1 hour.  (You can leave the remaining half in the pan until ready for use).
After first portion has set, smooth over it the sour cream.  I quickly put mine on this time.  But, you want it perfectly smooth, it just takes a little more effort.  Which makes for a nice presentation.
Then pour on remaining mixture.  Set until firm.
Serves about 9
