Directions:
Mix the concentrated lemonade according to the can directions. Using 1/4 cup of the 1 1/2 cups lemonade, soften Knox gelatin. In a heavy saucepan or double boiler, combine 1 1/4 cups lemonade, vanilla pudding mix and softened gelatin. Cook over low to medium heat (stirring constantly) until mixture thickens and bubbles. (I use a double boiler to cook mixture until very hot and thick; usually doesn't bubble using the double boiler)
Chill mixture until partially set. Whip cream and fold in cherries, oranges and pineapple. Quickly beat in chilled mixture at low speed (no more than a minute) Pour into bowl or mold and chill overnight or at least 5 hours.
