what you need

Take 3/4 cup boiling water and 1/2 cup cold water and mix & match your recipe from these options...

melon options Jell-O Brand Gelatin choices fruit possibilities
cantaloupe Cherry raspberries
honeydew Lime canned fruit cocktail, drained
casaba Orange strawberries
Crenshaw Strawberry blueberries

Then follow our 3 simple steps:

CUT 1 melon (about 3-1/2 lb.) in half lengthwise; remove and discard seeds. Scoop out melon, leaving each half with a 1-inch-thick shell. Chop removed melon; drain well. Cut thin slice off bottom of each melon shell to allow it to stand upright.

STIR 3/4 cup boiling water into 1 pkg. (4-serving size) Jell-O Brand Gelatin in large bowl at least 2 min. until completely dissolved. Stir in 1/2 cup cold water. Add 1/2 cup of the reserved chopped melon and 1/2 cup fruit to each melon shell.

POUR gelatin evenly into melon shells. Pour any remaining gelatin into small bowl to enjoy later. Refrigerate 4 hours or until firm. Cut each half melon into four wedges to serve.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Make it Easy
Instead of cutting off the bottoms of the melon halves, place melon shells in small bowls on a tray for easy transportation to the refrigerator.
Gelatin Success Tip
To make JELL-O Gelatin that is clear and uniformly set, be sure the gelatin is completely dissolved in the boiling water before adding the cold liquid. Stirring with a rubber spatula will help ensure that all the crystals are dissolved.
Fresh Fruits to Avoid in Gelatin Recipes
Since fresh or frozen pineapple, papaya, kiwi, figs, guava and gingerroot all contain enzymes that prevent gelatin from setting, never use them in gelatin recipes. But you can use any canned fruits or juices since the canning process kills this enzyme.
