"My husband likes this fruity combination almost as much as traditional apple pie - and that's saying something!" notes field editor Joan Rose of Langley, British Columbia. "I keep rhubarb, blueberries and raspberries in the freezer and always have apples on hand for this colorful dessert."

A 3 ounce box of gelatin should be enough with a little leftover. —Cindy Zarnstorff, Anchorage, Alaska
