Sure, Jeanne -- it's as easy as pie, but must be made ahead of time so it
will set.


1  envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
3/4 cup boiling water
1/3 cup sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 tsp almond extract

1 can Chinese loquats cut in half plus juice
1 can Chinese arbutus -- save the juice for drinking!
1 can Chinese lychees plus juice
1 kiwi, peeled, halved and sliced

1/3 cup sugar                  )
2 cups water                   )  additional syrup 
1/2 tsp almond extract )

1.   Soften gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water.  Add 3/4 cup boiling water and

1/3 cup sugar, stirring till disolved.  Add cold milk and almond extract,

mixing well.  Pour mixture into a square brownie pan, cover with 
aluminum foil, and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.

2.  Mix additional syrup and chill.

3.  Cut the almond float into 1/2 inch cubes by cutting 6 lines in one 
direction, and then 6 lines in the other direction.  Lift out with a
into a large bowl in which you have placed all the fruit and light
juices.  Add the additional syrup mixture so the fruit will float. 

4.  When available, cubes of honey dew or canteloupe melon may be
used, as well.  Must be ripe and sweet~!  

5.  In this area, the Chinese throw some small ice cubes in just before
serving, and they use a punch bowl and ladle for do-it-yourselfers. 
Very refreshing in the hot weather, or after a spicy meal.
