  1. Bring water to a boil in a small saucepan. Stir in gelatin until completely dissolved, then place into refrigerator until cool (but not solid).
  2. Pour evaporated milk into a large bowl, and whip with a hand mixer until fluffy and doubled in volume. While continuing to beat, slowly pour in cooled gelatin. When all of the gelatin has been incorporated, pour the mixture into a mold or bowl and chill until set, about 3 hours. Once set, serve garnished with raspberries.

this is wonderful. I did not put the jello mix in the fridge, I just left it on the counter to cool to room temp. It definately serves more than 5 people.

A very old recipe because my mother used to make it with different flavors of jello. Suggest you use only 3/4 can of evaporated milk. Always the first dessert to disappear at a church supper.
