Mary Gray wrote: "This is my favorite aspic recipe." Now some might say that isn't saying much, but I have fond memories of this old fashioned molded salad.
  1. Combine two cups of the tomato juice with the celery, brown sugar, bay leaves, chopped onion, salt and cloves. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes. Strain hot juice mixture into a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, soften gelatin in 1 cup of cold tomato juice. Dissolve into hot juice mixture. Add the remaining tomato juice and lemon juice. Chill till partly set.
  3. Add up to 2 cups of any one of or combination of some or all of the garnish items listed. Put in a 5 cup ring mold and chill.
