This lightly sweetened fruit dessert recipe looks beautiful with the red raspberries suspended in purple gelatin. It’s not as firm as a classic jello dessert since it’s not meant to be unmolded, so prepare in a large serving dish or divide the mixture among 8 small glass bowls for individual servings. The smaller portions will set quicker than the single serving dish.
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 3 1/2 cups sweetened black currant juice or cran-raspberry juice
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3 cups raspberries (about 1 1/2 pints), divided
- Measure water into a 2-quart glass measuring cup or other heatproof container. Sprinkle gelatin over the water and stir until evenly moistened. Let stand until the gelatin is soft, about 3 minutes.
- Meanwhile, combine juice and sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Gradually stir into the gelatin mixture. Continue to stir until the gelatin is completely dissolved, 1 to 2 minutes.
- Refrigerate the mixture until slightly thickened and syrupy, 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 hours. Pour a 1-inch layer of it into a 1 1/2-quart glass serving dish. Gently arrange half the raspberries in a single layer on top. Return both containers to the refrigerator for 15 minutes, then pour another layer of gelatin over the berries. Top with the remaining berries and pour the rest of the gelatin mixture over them.
- Refrigerate until completely set, about 2 hours more.
