Grapefruit Gelatin Molds Recipe

I found this recipe in a magazine back in the '50s. It's a nice salad, particularly with a heavy meal. It's a refreshing snack as well.

  • 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup grapefruit juice
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice


  • 1. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; let stand for 1 minute. In a saucepan, combine sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; stir in gelatin until dissolved. Stir in juices; pour into three 1/2-cup or one 2-cup mold coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours or until set. Yield: 2-3 servings.

""Strangely addicting" were the words my husband used to describe this. I tried this because I love the flavor of grapefruit, and I thought it turned out very well. Simple to make too. My only complaint would be the "look" of it... after it's scooped on you plate, its the same color/consistency of congealed fat. I think next time I might add a few drops of red food coloring to make it look more like a pink or ruby red grapefruit."
