Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, leaving the spoon in it, and set in refrigerator.  Chill, stirring whenever you remember to, for about 1 hour.  ( Don’t stress out about stirring.  Completely forgot one time and it came out fine.)

After an hour test to see if the gelatin mixture is ready to take out of the fridge by dropping one piece of “lighter” fruit into it.  If it “floats”, it’s ready!
