Strawberry Gelatins

Source: Everyday Food, May 2006

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds strawberries
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) unflavored gelatin

Directions

  1. Hull and quarter 1 pound of the strawberries; combine in a medium bowl with sugar and lemon juice. Set aside, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Place 1 cup cold water in a small saucepan; sprinkle gelatin over water. Let stand at least 5 minutes to soften.

  2. Working in batches, puree strawberry mixture in a blender. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup after each batch (discard solids). Add enough water to strained juice to measure a total of 3 cups liquid. Set aside.

  3. Heat softened gelatin over medium-high, just until it begins to bubble around the edges and gelatin has dissolved (do not boil), 2 to 3 minutes; stir into strawberry juice. Divide mixture among four serving glasses. Chill until firm, 3 to 4 hours.

  4. To serve, hull and dice remaining 1/2 pound strawberries; spoon on top of chilled gelatins.

    I wasn't a fan of this recipe at all. It did not gel properly for me although I followed the directions to the t. However, it was my first attempt at a gelatin dessert, so maybe it's harder than I thought it would be.
