1 lb canned chow chow or mixed fruit salad
2 cups water
1 oz unflavored gelatine
2 cups milk
1 tsp almond essence
granulated sugar to taste

  • Chop the larger pieces of chow chow in half or drain the mixed fruit salad. 
  • Place 4 tablespoons of the water in a cup and stand it in a sauce pan of hot water. 
  • Shower the gelatine into the cup and heat, stirring, until the gelatine has dissolved. Cool. 
  • Heat the remaining water with milk, sugar to taste, and almond essence. 
  • Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Stir in the gelatine. Pour into a shallow, lightly oiled cake tin and cool until set. 
  • Cut the almond cream into triangular bite-sized pieces. 
  • Place these in a serving bowl with the fruit and combine very gently. Serve very cold.
