1/2 c. cold water
1 envelope plain gelatin

1/3 c. sugar or 2 Tbsp. honey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 c. (including syrup) from canned fruits (any)
1/4 c. frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted

fresh (or canned) fruits - your choice


Use a quart glass jar (or anything that will hold 4 cups). Pour 1/2 cup cold water in jar and sprinkle 1 envelope of gelatin over the water. Let stand to soften for 5 minutes.

Microwave water/gelatin mixture for 1 minute.

Add sugar (or honey), canned fruit with syrup, lemon juice, and frozen orange juice concentrate, undiluted.

Fill jar with chopped fresh or canned fruits: apple, pear, peach, banana, grapes, berries, oranges.

Pour mixture into an 8 square pan. Its pretty if you add maraschino cherries on top.

Chill in refrigerator until set.

This is delicious and versatile. It came from "Miss Monique", my beloved teacher at Hayfield Montessori School.
