- 1 envelope plain gelatin
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 3/4 cup hot water
- 1 cup sugar
- dash salt
- 1 large can of evaporated milk, well chilled
juice and pulp of 2 1/2 lemons
- 2 graham cracker crusts
In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water. Add hot water, sugar and salt. Cool to room temperature. Whip well.
Slowly add the chilled evaporated milk to the gelatin mixture and continue to whip. Add lemon juice and pulp and beat until well mixed. Pour into the graham cracker crusts. Chill until set.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
