Homemade Blackberry Gelatin & Chilled Blackberry Parfaits

From Bon Appetit, August 1998. Make the gelatin at least one day ahead so that it has time to set. For a sophisticated dessert, layer the blackberry gelatin with sweetened vanilla whipped cream and a few sweetened blackberries in parfait glasses or wine glasses. If only making gelatin, will serve four.
