Fruity Gelatin Delight
Instead of using the fresh fruit in this recipe, why not lower yourfood bill by using one 15-ounce can fruit cocktail? Canned fruit is also a good alternative when fresh produce is out of season.
3 oz raspberry gelatin
1 cup boiling water
10 ice cubes
1 tart apple, chopped
1/2 cup seedless red or green grape halves
1 small banana, sliced
1/4 cup chopped pecans
2 cup whipped topping
1/2 cup blueberries
Dissolve gelatin in boiling water in a medium bowl.
Add ice cubes to bowl; stir for 3 minutes or until melted.
Chill gelatin in refrigerator for 15 minutes. Fold in apple, grapes, banana and pecans. Cover and chill for about 15 minutes.
Spoon about 1/4 of the gelatin mixture into a clear glass bowl. Alternate layers of whipped topping, blueberries and remaining gelatin in bowl, ending with whipped topping. Serve immediately.
If the quick-cookingmethod found on the gelatin package isnt fast enough, try an even faster method. Dissolve the gelatin in just a few tablespoons of boiling water, then add ice water for the rest of the liquid.
