If there are some strawberries available this is a great way to use them. Serves eight.
1 quart strawberries, hulled
1 cup sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3 T. boiling water
1 T. lemon juice
2-1/2 cups cream, whipped
Step 1. Crush the berries and add the sugar. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
Step 2. Soak the gelatin in 3 tablespoons cold water until soft. Dissolve it in the boiling water. Stir the gelatin into the strawberries. Add the lemon juice.
Step 3. Chill the mixture and, when it is about to set, fold in 2 cups whipped cream.
Step 4. Pour the mixture into a cold wet 2 quart mold. Chill until it is firm. Unmold, garnish with remaining whipped cream and strawberries. Serve.
