Hi Chef Andy,

Here is a recipe I found that may help Cheryl. ( I have not tried this recipe, nor ever eaten anything like it.) Thanks for providing such a funny yet informative website.

Fantastic! Thanks for the recipe...This is certainly the one that Cheryl was looking for! Demented as the world of Jell-O recipes may be at times, Chef Andy seriously doubts that there could be two recipes calling for Jell-O, Rice, and Almond Extract!

Cherry Rice Fluff
1 1/2 cups cooked rice
1 cup milk, divided
3 oz. pkg. cherry gelatin
1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/4 tsp. almond extract
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons sugar
16-oz. can pitted red cherries, halved and drained with juice reserved

Glaze: Reserved cherry juice 1 tablespoon cornstarch 1/4 tsp. almond extract

Combine the rice and 1/2 cup of the milk. Let stand. Dissolve gelatin in the boiling water. Stir in remaining 1/2 cup milk and almond extract. Chill until partially set. Whip cream with sugar. Fold rice mixture, cherries, and whipped cream into gelatin. Spoon into an oiled 6-cup mold or casserole.

Chill until set, about 4 hours. For the glaze: Combine juice and cornstarch in saucepan. Heat until thickened. Stir in extract. Chill.

To serve, unmold fluff and drizzle with glaze. Yield: 6 servings
