This Aspic was served with "Mamie's Best Ever Meatloaf" at the "Homespun Restaurant" in Southern Utah. The cafe was popular for its home cooking, and it was a favorite of many film stars who were frequently there shooting on location. It is delicious as are other recipes of Mamie Robinson. She left a legacy of wonderful recipes some of which are featured in "The Chicken Soup for the Soul Cookbook" by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen & Diana von Welanetz Wentworth. This recipe is delicious!

How to Make Mamie's Tomato Aspic

Step-by-Step

  1. In earlier years, aspic was made from home-grown and home-preserved tomato juice-rich in flavor, but inexpensive. An advantage to aspic was that it could be made ahead--way ahead. It is colorful, nutritious, satisfying and slimming.
  2. Soften gelatin in 1/2 cup cold tomato juice for 5 minutes. In a small saucepan, heat 3 1/2 cups tomato juice; stir in gelatin mixture until dissolved. Cool. Add the zest and the lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and onion salt to taste. Pour into a ring mold that holds 6-8 cups; chill until set.
  3. When ready to serve, unmold on a round platter and fill the center of the ring with a mixed salad of your choice. (We like bay shrimp mixed with Thousand Island dressing, or maybe your favorite coleslaw with fresh peas?!
