New Years Jello

Sparkling Jello Delight

1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin

2 cups cold white grape juice, divided

2 tablespoons sugar

2 cups sparkling cider

8 fresh strawberries, with top sliced off  *optional

In a small pan, sprinkle gelatin over 1 cup cold grape juice; let stand for 1 minute.  Add sugar and heat over medium heat stirring until gelatin and sugar are dissolved.  Remove from heat and stir in remaining 1 cup cold grape juice.  Cool to room temperature (about 30 minutes on counter or you can speed it up by placing pan in a sink or bowl of ice water.)

Pour gelatin into a large bowl.  Slowly stir in sparkling cider.  Pour 3/4 of mixture into eight champagne glasses and leave remaining mixture at room temperature.   Add one strawberry to each glass and chill for about 1 hour or until slightly thickened.  Whip remaining gelatin until very foamy- use your hand held mixer with whisk attachment or blender.  Spoon into glasses and chill until set.

    Dear Joy of Jello,
    I was hoping to use your photos for the “Sparkling Jello Delight” in Prerogative magazine. The photos would be attributed to you. Can I get your permission on this?

    How far in advance could I make this? Just wondering how well the strawberry keeps?
