Cherry Mincemeat Mold

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + chilling


8 servings

This gelatin has a touch of sweetness from dark cherries and a nice crunch from apples and nuts. Its red color makes it festive for December meals.—Nella Parker, Hersey, Michigan


  • 1 can (15 ounces) pitted dark sweet cherries
  • 2 packages (3 ounces each) cherry gelatin
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped tart apple
  • 1/2 cup prepared mincemeat
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  1. Drain cherries, reserving juice in a 2-cup measuring cup; add enough water to measure 1-1/2 cups. Cut cherries in half; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir in lemon juice and cherry juice mixture. Refrigerate until partially set. Fold in the apple, mincemeat, walnuts and cherries. Transfer to a 6-cup ring mold coated with cooking spray. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold onto a serving plate.
