How to Unmold Gelatin
Dip mold in warm water for about 15 sec. Gently pull gelatin from around edge with moistened fingers. Place moistened serving plate on top of mold. Invert mold and plate; holding mold and plate together, shake slightly to loosen. Gently remove mold and center gelatin on plate.
Never use fresh pineapple in a gelatin recipe. Raw pineapple contains an enzyme that prevents the gelatin from setting.
Garnish with additional fresh fruit and mint leaves just before serving.
