Mousse, Pineapple-Lemon (D/P, TNT)
Source: Bon Appetit Magazine
Serves: 10-12

2 3-ounce packages lemon-flavoured gelatin
1 20-ounce can crushed pineapple in its own juice
3/4 cup (about) pineapple juice
1/2 cup of water
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp. grated lemon peel
2 cups chilled whipping cream, or Rich's Whip
4 tsp. vanilla extract

Pour gelatin into large bowl.

Drain pineapple thoroughly in sieve set over large measuring cup. Add enough additional pineapple juice in cup to measure 1-1/2 cups. Transfer juice to small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Pour boiling juice over gelatin. Stir well until gelatin dissolves.

Mix in drained pineapple, 1/2 cup water, lemon juice and grated lemon peel. Refrigerate until mixture thickens and just begins to set, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour.

Beat cream and vanilla in another large bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into gelatin mixture in 2 additions. Transfer mousse to large serving bowl, or spoon into goblets. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours.

Poster's Notes:
Whether you serve this in individual goblets or a pretty bowl, garnish it with fresh mint.
