Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cran-raspberry or apple-raspberry juice
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 4 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cold sparkling white grape or apple juice
  • 2 cups fresh raspberries, divided

Preparation

  1. Bring cran-raspberry (or apple-raspberry) juice to a boil in a small saucepan over high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, pour water into a large heatproof bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over the water; let stand for 3 minutes. Add the juice and stir to completely dissolve the gelatin, 2 to 3 minutes. Add sugar and stir for 1 minute to dissolve. Whisk in sparkling white grape (or apple) juice.
  3. Refrigerate until the mixture is the consistency of thin pudding and is just starting to set around the edges, 1 to 1 3/4 hours. The time will vary depending on the size of your bowl and how cold your refrigerator is. After 1 hour, start checking every 5 to 10 minutes because it thickens quickly after that.
  4. Gently but thoroughly whisk the mixture until it’s uniform. Stir in raspberries. Pour into a 9-by-13-inch pan. Cover the pan with plastic wrap, without touching the jello.
  5. Refrigerate until very firm, about 3 hours. To test if it’s ready, touch it with your finger. If your finger does not stick, it’s done.
  6. Run a small, sharp knife around the edge of the pan. Cut into 16 squares then gently pry the squares out with a butter knife.
