  • Summary

    Though this recipe owes a debt to that icon of childhood desserts, Jell-O with whipped cream, the interplay of floral passion fruit and herbal basil is nothing if not elegant.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin (from a 1/4-oz envelope)
    • 1/4 cup water
    • 2 cups passion-fruit nectar (preferably Looza brand)
    • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 1/2 cups well-chilled heavy cream
    • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin (from another 1/4-oz envelope)
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • Garnish: 4 fresh basil leaves (optional)
    • 1 empty egg carton; 4 (6- to 8-oz) slender clear glasses (not stemmed)
