Almond Jello

I found this recipe while searching for different Chinese recipes to try during our unit. I didn't want stir fry and eggrolls all the time. This is definately an interesting twist on jello but is really quite good despite the odd look it has. Next time I will use more natural ingredients including agar-agar and evaporated cane juice following this recipe a bit more closly.

Almond Jello Recipe (my changes in red)

3 cups evaporated milk (not condensed)
1 cup sugar
2 packages unflavored gelatin
4 tsp amond extract, divided
1 (14 oz) fruit cocktail

Take 1 cup evaporated milk, the gelatin and sugar and disolve over low heat.
Add 2 tsp almond extract
Take remaining 2 cups milk and mix with remaining 2 tsp almond extract, stir and add into hot milk. (I let the milk get almost to the boiling point.)
Stir until well blended.
Pour into a bowl and cool in fridge 2-3 hours. (I had to put it in the freezer for about an hour to have it done in time for supper)
When firm, cut into cubes adding the fruit cocktail, including liquid.
Mix lightly and serve.
