Cindi's Strawberry Gelatin Mold

“A 3 ingredient gelatin mold, that tastes just as good as it looks! Ingredients are...boxed strawberry gelatin, boiling water, and frozen, sweetened strawberries. The strawberries I pick myself, and sweetened with granulated sugar before I freeze them, and use later through out the year. This salad is one of the best tasting strawberry gelatin molds I've ever made.”

Directions

  1. In a large (heat proof) bowl, add the boxes of strawberry jell-o gelatin.
  2. Pour in the boiling water, and stir until the jell-o has dissolved.
  3. Add the partially thawed, sweetened strawberries, and stir for a few minutes. Since I use partially frozened sweetened strawberries in this recipe, I do not add any cold water.
  4. Using a non-stick cooking spray, spray the inside of one large (6 cup) Tupperware Gelatin Mold (the kind that has an insert in the middle which is removable. Use a plastic sandwich bag to thoroughly coat the gelatin mold.
  5. Pour jell-o mixture into the Tupperware Gelatin Mold, or add to one large bowl, or a pan. (I've found that after I poured the jell-o mixture in the 6-cup gelatin mold, I have some gelatin leftover. I then pour the remaining jell-o mixture into a custard cup).
  6. Chill gelatin mold (uncovered) in the refrigerator until it has set up. Then cover the gelatin with the Tupperware lid, until it's ready to serve.
  7. Note: When making this salad/dessert, I use strawberries that I pick myself, and sweetened myself (with sugar) and had frozen. I never use store bought frozen, sweetened strawberries. (The 30 ounces of partially thawed berries should equal 3 cups total).
  8. Also, I usually make this salad/dessert one day prior to serving, so it sets up nicely overnight in the fridge. When ready to serve, I loosen the inside and outerside edges of the Tupperware mold with finger dipped in warm water. I then place a plate over the Tupperware mold, and turn it over, so the gelatin mold will release from the Tupperware mold, and onto the plate. Remove the center insert, and either fill it with fresh fruit or thawed Cool Whip, and serve.
