This is from my beloved Southern Heritage set again, the Celebrations volume. Here is a menu for Easter Sunday Dinner:
Baked Ham in Pastry (pictured)
Apple Aspic (also pictured, yellow stuff garnishing ham. Scary.)
Pickled Peaches (the Easter favorite)
Frozen Fruit Salad (just go buy the bag of this)
Yum yum. Now I like pastry, and I like small amounts of ham. I don't think they need to go together, and they certainly don't need to be garnished by pickled peaches and apple aspic. What's wrong with regular peaches? Talk about processed food!
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 1/2 cups apple juice
Soften gelatin in cold water. Bring apple juice to a boil; remove from heat and add softened gelatin, stirring until dissolved. Pour into a lightly oiled (really, oil?) 13x9x2 inch baking pan; chill until firm. Remove from pan; place in a small mixing bowl and finely chop. Use as a garnish for baked ham. Yield: about 1 cup.
Really. That's a lot of work for no good purpose. If you want it that bad, get some apple jelly. Chopping jello. What's next? Prunes? Oh wait...
