Can you guess the ingredients in these vintage holiday recipes?

Is that meat or fruit in that Jell-O?!

Holiday feasts with the family bring out those handed-down recipes. Your entire life, from childhood to adulthood, you have been eating them. Maybe it's Aunt Edna's Jell-O salad with the pretzels inside or Uncle Jerry's cranberry sauce with mandarin oranges. They may be divisive, but they're part of family history!

Meals have changed over the decades. The food spreads of Thanksgivings and Christmases past featured some ingredients that would cause kids today to make a face.

We've gathered some… unique recipes from the 1950s, '60s and '70s. See if you can guess what is inside!

  1. What is in this bright green Christmas tree — besides food coloring, obviously?
