Here's an updated retro recipe that gives double meaning to the word heirloom. This simple recipe brought back to life by Catherine Louise Schubert makes a great side dish for fried chicken.

Serve it with a side of mayonnaise or sour cream flavored with horseradish.

  • Step 1

    Strain Orange & Blush Tomatoes, reserving the juice.

  • Step 2

    Soften the gelatin in 2 to 3 tablespoons of the reserved juice.

  • Step 3

    Place 1/2 of the tomatoes in a sauce pan, add the softened gelatin and gently warm until the gelatin is dissolved. Do not boil.

  • Step 4

    Combine the reserved tomatoes and remaining juice to the pan and add the juice of 1/2 of a lemon, the champagne vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.

  • Step 5

    Place mixture in a small metal loaf pan such as a mini loaf pan measuring 5 inches x 2 1/2 inches. Cover with cling film and place in fridge for 5 hours or overnight.

  • Step 6

    Garnish with micro celery greens or chervil and serve with mayonnaise or sour cream infused with horseradish for an extra kick.
