Blueberry · Guanabana · Strawberry

Berry 4th of July Jello

For the holiday weekend I made this festive star-shaped mold with blueberries and strawberries set in a layer of clear gelatin.  The white base layer is Guanabana flavored gelatin brought back for me from Mexico by Art. (More exotic Mexican flavors to follow). The flavor was fruity and refreshing, perfect for the very hot weekend. Happy 4th of July!

    1. The guanabana gelatin was made from a store bought flavored gelatin powder my friend got for me in Mexico so I did not actually use the fruit itself. I have never actually worked with the fruit so you would probably know better than me, but if it can been puréed into a juice you can use the general recipe below to make it into a gelatin. It may require some adjustments to sugar but this is the basic idea. Good luck!

      In a bowl, sprinkle 1 tablespoon (1 envelope) unflavored gelatin evenly over 1/2 cup of the juice and allow the gelatin to absorb the juice for two minutes. Stir in 1 cup boiling juice until gelatin is fully dissolved. Stir in 1/2 cup of sugar. Pour into a mold or serving cups. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold and serve. (Just double or triple the recipe for larger quantities.)
