    Lennie's Note:

    I first received this recipe when I took Chinese Cooking classes at night school back in 1978. Unfortunately, I have misplaced my notes -- so I found this on the Web in response to a request for an oriental-themed dessert. It is very very close to my misplaced recipe. Prep time includes LOTS of chilling time.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a saucepan, bring water to a boil; add gelatin and sugar and cook until dissolved.
    2. 2
      Remove from heat; stir in milk and almond extract.
    3. 3
      Pour into a 13x9 glass pan and refrigerate until firm (about 2 hours).
    4. 4
      In the recipe I found on the Web, it says to use the cans of fruit undrained; however, this is not what I remember from my recipe and I would recommend draining them.

      In a large serving bowl, gently stir together the fruit cocktail, lychees and mandarin oranges.
    6. 6
      Cut gelatin into cubes, preferably diamond-shaped.

      Gently combine with fruit.
    8. 8
      Garnish with cherries, if desired.
    9. 9
      Chill well before serving.

      Nice light summer salad. This is very similar to a recipe my fiancee's father makes, although he makes it without adding sugar to the gelatin (and I think I prefer it that way - there is plenty of sweet in this recipe). I also add pineapple, and I agree that the fruit should be drained.
