DIRECTIONS

Drain fruit cocktail; save syrup. Dissolve gelatin in 1 gallon boiling water. Measure syrup; add enough cold water to make 1 gallon; add to dissolved gelatin with lemon juice. Chill until mixture begins to thicken. Fold in fruit cocktail. Pour into shallow baking or roasting pans; chill until firm. Makes 80 half-cup servings.
