    Agree that this is the quinessential summer dessert. Too bad there’s so much stigma against gelatine dessert. I was surprised by the clarity too.

    Your lovely terrine is packed full of fruits, and looked really, really light despite the gelatine. I can see why you enjoyed it so much!

    Your berry terrine looks just lovely.

    And I live in Germany so I feel your pain on the weather front, this has been the most miserable summer I can remember. I was sitting at an outdoor cafe yesterday in a turtleneck and scarf!

    Why, oh,why would one buy a box of jello again? I am sold!

  5. I probably would have shied away from this recipe because of the gelatin. You’ve made me realize how elegant it is and gelatin isn’t a thing to fear from our past.

  6. I like a little Jello now and then. I’m sure I’d love you elegant version.

    This is truly lovely, Mardi.
    I wish something like this had been around in my youth instead of the odd Jell-o salads of potluck lore…

    That is gorgeous! I love that you added those macerated berries…I would have enjoyed that extra sweetness.

    This is a beautiful dessert, that I, a Jell-O, aspic and gelatin enemy, could love. I didn’t grow up with any of those molded Jell-O salads, just regular Jell-0 with the occasional addition of canned pineapple, but I just don’t like the stuff. Hope to change my mind if I keep seeing things as pretty as this. But still — it’s wiggly, right?

    It’s pushing 90 degrees today and getting warmer eah day. That looks just perfect for a day like this!

  14. Your photos are amazing! This dessert looks so refreshing and delicious and I’m sure will convert anyone with a fruit/gelatin aversion 🙂

    French terrine is so much more elegant than Jell-O. Yours looks beautiful. I especially like the berries spooned over it. Lovely.

    Your terrine looks fantastic and I love the idea of serving it as a ‘palate cleanser’ after your Charcutepalooza meals. The macerated berries look fantastic. I’ll definitely make those when I try it with a grapefruit juice base.

  23. This looks so beautiful, Mardi!

    Beautiful, refreshing dessert Mardi. Love the first dish it was photographed in too.
