Fresh Strawberry Mousse
1 pint strawberries
2 packages (3 ounces each) strawberry flavor gelatin
1/4 cup sugar
1 pint whipping cream
Crush the strawberries and drain the juice: reserve. Add enough water to the juice to make 1 1/2 cups. Bring the juice to a boil and stir in the gelatin; dissolve and cool. Add the strawberries and sugar. Whip the cream until it stands in soft peaks and fold it into the strawberry mixture. Pour the mixture into a 2-quart ring mold or a 1 1/2-quart souffle dish with a 2-inch collar. Chill several hours or over night.
