Berry Desert


Not a lot of people like Gelatin deserts but I always did, I remember when we were kids my mother and grandmother would make one with lemon or lime gelatin with olives...hated that one. There was another with pineapple or fruit cocktail. That one was ok. This recipe I am featuring today is one that I will be trying for sure...full of fresh fruits, a dollop of whipped cream.. nummy!! The nice thing about this desert is that you can use diet grape juice to lessen the calories.I just love the look of it. 

Ingredients

1/4 pound fresh strawberries $
1/4 pound fresh blueberries
1/4 pound fresh blackberries $
1/4 pound fresh raspberries $
1 quart unsweetened white grape juice, at room temperature $
4 (1/4 oz.) packets unflavored gelatin

Preparation

Wash strawberries, pat dry, hull and halve (if they are large). Remove any stems from blueberries; rinse berries and pat dry. Rinse blackberries and pat dry. (Do not rinse raspberries.) Put berries in a large bowl. Toss gently and transfer to an 8-by-4- inch (2-quart) loaf pan.

Pour 1/2 cup juice in a small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin on top and let stand and soften for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, pour 1 1/2 cups juice into a large, heat-proof bowl. Microwave for 2 minutes at full power, until hot. Microwave softened gelatin at full power for 30 seconds to dissolve it. Stir gelatin into hot juice. Stir in remaining 2 cups room-temperature juice.

Gradually pour 3 cups juice-gelatin mixture over berries. Chill uncovered for 30 minutes to set. Drizzle remaining juice into mold (cover all berries) and chill for at least 2 1/2 hours, until firm.

To unmold, place pan in hot water for 10 seconds. Remove from water; invert an oblong platter over pan and flip. Gelatin should loosen. If it doesn't, return pan to hot water. Blot any liquid with a paper towel.
