I found this delicious and beautiful recipe (among many others!) in a new cookbook from Yeshiva K’tana of Lakewood. I served it at a recent simchah, and thought it would make a special mishloach manos presentation as well.

INGREDIENTS

YIELDS 50–60 PORTIONS

  • 5 lb (2.2 kg) frozen strawberries, defrosted
  •  5 pkgs raspberry or strawberry jello chopped mango
  • chopped kiwis
  • blueberries 
  • pomegranate seeds


PREPARATION

Place strawberries in a pot and blend with a stick blender. (Or blend in a food processor and then transfer to a pot.) Bring to a boil. Add jello and stir until thickened. Allow to cool. Fill votive holders approximately two-thirds of the way to the top with the strawberry mixture. Add chopped kiwis or mango, blueberries, and pomegranate seeds. Arrange in box and tie with a bow.

Note For mishloach manos, use a glue dot under each glass to hold it in place. To serve at a simchah, line up a dozen-plus glasses topped with different fruit toppings. It makes a really gorgeous presentation.
