LAURA MANCHESTER

Sprinkle gelatin on milk and let sit 1 minute. Add boiling water and stir to dissolve gelatin. Stir in sugar and almond extract.

Refrigerate till firm.

Jon's notes: As you know, this is very soothing and refreshing, especially on a hot summer day. Also excellent for a sore mouth.

Sometimes Laura makes this in a ring mold, then fills the center with fresh fruit. Sometimes she makes it in a long pan and cuts the gelatin into diamond shapes. She then makes a basket out of a watermelon, and combines the diamond shaped gelatin with melon balls, strawberries, fresh pineapple, etc. Sometimes she puts the diamond shapes in a punch bowl, and adds fresh fruit and ginger ale. She suggests that you reduce the sugar.
