    Member #610488's Note:

    This simple recipe turns out a delicious dessert or salad fit for company. We serve it when the family gets together as a simple dessert along with berries that are in season. This recipe requires a jello or salad mold. Mixture timing does not include refrigeration time. NOTE: Have taken a look at recipe again based on Chef with no Name review and agree. Have modified recipe to reflect review.

      Overkill on the gelatin and sugar both - cut them by half for better consistency and flavor. 1/4 oz = 1 envelope is enough to get 1 c of liquid (for reference, that's double the gelatin used for jello). The 2oz=8 envelopes recommended here would harden 8c of liquid - this recipe has just 3 cups.

      I scaled this recipe in half as it is just me and the kids. We all really liked it! I made my life very easy by using a purchased (German) applesauce, and it came together in no time at all. Nice and light.
