Berry Gelatin Mold

This refreshing gelatin mold is delicious and always a big hit! For a patriotic buffet, I add a scoop of frozen whipped topping, then place a fancy-cut strawberry and a sprinkling of blueberries for festive, red-white-and-blue color. —Anne Marie Papineau, Hanover, Connecticut

    I'm just getting around to rating this and it's definitely a 5-star gelatin. I make it frequently for family gatherings--I load it with the fresh berries so the gelatin just covers them, and I quarter (or eighth, depending on size) the strawberries so they're about the same size as a raspberry. Great for summer holidays or Thanksgiving dinner.

    I was looking for a jello mold recipe to try and this was the one I picked. It took over 3 hours to partially set to add the fruit. My jello book said you should be able to drag a spoon through it and the line should stay visible. I took it to work and everyone loved it. It is beautiful as well.

    Wonderful recipe. Enjoyed the zip the club soda gives it. It does seem to take longer than the 45 minutes to get it to partially set, but maybe that is just my refrigerator. Just make sure to allow enough time.

    Super dish on a hot summer day. After chilled and set, to serve outside, I turned it over in a plastc pan, set the pan in a larger pie pan and surrounded the pan with ice cubes to keep it chilled and solic. Was a sucessful favorite, especially with the children.
