TOMATO ASPIC RECIPE
Once upon a time, tomato aspics were the brilliant red centerpieces of luncheon buffets. They were peppered with pimiento-stuffed olives or crisp bits of celery, chilled in ring-shaped molds, turned out onto lettuce-lined trays, and filled with the hostess's signature blend of chicken or shrimp salad.

- Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water in a bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Whisk in the boiling water until the gelatin is dissolved.
- Stir together the tomato juice and next 8 ingredients in a large saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high. Reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Pour through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl; stir in the lemon juice and gelatin.
- Pour into a 10-inch ring mold coated with cooking spray or 6 individual molds; chill 6 hours or until set.
- Core tomatoes; coarsely chop.Working in batches, transfer to a food processor or food mill. Process to a rough puree.
- Rinse two 24-inch square pieces of cheesecloth.Wring out cheesecloth; layer pieces in a large glass bowl. Pour puree into cheesecloth; gather up ends, and cinch with kitchen twine. Tie ends of cloth together to make a loop. Hang sack from a cupboard door, placing bowl directly underneath to collect juices.
- Let drain at least 1 hour; liquid will be pale. Transfer it to a large glass measuring cup, and set aside.
- Squeeze bundle over emptied bowl to extract remaining liquid; pour into another measuring cup. You should have about 4 cups dark-red tomato juice; if needed, add enough reserved pale liquid to make 4 cups. Pass juice through a fine sieve into a bowl. Discard pale liquid.
- Place 1 cup tomato juice in a small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over liquid; let soften, about 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a medium saucepan; stir over very low heat until gelatin dissolves. Stir in some of the juice to lower the temperature of the gelatin mixture, then add remaining juice and salt.
- Pour mixture into a 9-by-4 3/4-by-2 1/2-inch loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until jelled, at least 1 hour. To unmold: Slide a knife around inside edge of pan.Wrap loaf pan in a hot towel, and invert onto a serving platter. Garnish with basil sprigs.
My mother used to make this for my dad and he loved it! If you like tomato juice, you really should give this tomato gelatin recipe a try. (Prep time includes chilling time; cook time indicates time estimate for juice to come to boiling)

- Lightly grease eight to ten 8-ounce individual molds or custard cups.
- Place the tomatoes, onion, celery, bay leaves, garlic, and cloves in a large saucepan with 1/2 cup of the water and stir to mix. Bring to a low boil and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally and skimming the rising foam as needed. Remove from the heat and strain, discarding the bay leaves and cloves, then pushing the pulp through a sieve to make 4 to 5 cups of juice. Add the lemon zest and juice, sugar, vinegar, basil, and salt and pepper to taste and stir to combine.
- Return the juice to the saucepan, bring to a boil, and reduce by about 2 cups, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to a low boil. Fill a large bowl with ice water. Combine the gelatin with the remaining 1/4 cup water in a large bowl and stir to mix. Pour the hot juice over the gelatin mixture and stir until the gelatin dissolves. Remove the basil and place the pan of juice in the water bath to fully cool, stirring regularly for even coloring and texture.
- Divide the mixture evenly between the prepared molds, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight, until the aspic sets up and is firm.
- To unmold the aspics, run a knife around the outside edge of the molds and set in a pan of warm water for 15 to 20 seconds to loosen. Invert onto a plate or platter and serve or refrigerate until ready to serve.
- In a food processor or blender, puree the tomatoes and jalapeño until smooth. Line a large bowl with a double layer of cheesecloth. Transfer the puree to the prepared bowl. With kitchen twine, tie the cheesecloth to enclose the tomato puree; tie the bundle to a large wooden spoon. Rest the spoon across the top of a stockpot or deep jar, letting the juices drip into the pot for about 3 hours. Pour the tomato water through a fine chinois or sieve into a bowl. Add salt; stir to combine.
- Place 1/2 cup cold water in a small heatproof bowl. Sprinkle the gelatin evenly over the water; set aside 5 minutes to soften. Bring a small saucepan of water to a simmer; place the bowl of gelatin over it. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved; remove the bowl from heat. Stir in some of the tomato water to reduce the temperature, then stir all of the gelatin mixture into the remaining tomato water.

Aspic is French for jelly. Originally it referred to a meat jelly, but there are now many varieties of fruit and vegetable aspics. This is great for picnics, and goes nicely with fried chicken.

DOLLIE'S TOMATO ASPIC
This was my grandmother's (Dollie Cowan) recipe. She often served this at luncheons. Tomato aspic sounds a little strange to people nowadays, but it was very popular in the South in the 1930s-50s. Dollie served it on butter lettuce with a little mayonnaise on top.
