1/2 c. uncooked rice, not instant
1 (20 oz.) can crushed pineapple in
its own juice
1 (3 oz.) pkg. sugar-free fruit
flavored gelatin
1 c. boiling water
1 c. (scant) pineapple juice, drained
from can
1/4 c. chopped maraschino cherries
(if desired for color)
1/2 pt. heavy cream

Cook rice according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Drain pineapple, reserving 1 cup juice. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add pineapple juice. Stir in well drained rice. The cooked rice will absorb the color and flavor of the gelatin. Mix well and chill until thickened, but not quite set. Add drained pineapple and cherries (if desired). Fold in cream that has been whipped. Chill. Serves 8.
