   milk till well mixed; stir in geltain mixture. Let
   stand 1 minute to soften gelatin slightly. Cook over

   and coats a spoon well, about 15 minutes (mixture
   should be about 170F to 175F but do not boil or it
   will curdle.) Remove saucepan from heat; stir in
   almond extract or almond liqueur. Cover and
   refrigerate till mixture mounds slightly when dropped
   from spoon, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
   Meanwhile, cut each grape lengthwise in half. Peel and
   thinly slice kiwi. Set grapes and kiwi aside. In small
   bowl with mixer at medium speed, beat with mixer at
   medum heat, beat whipping cream, till stiff peaks
   form. With rubber spatula or wire whisk, fold whipped
   cream into almond custard. Evenly spoon custard into
   cooled Tart shell. Arrange grapes, cut side down and
   kiwifruit on tart in concentric circles. Carefully
   remove side from tart pan. In small saucepan over
   medium heat, melt apple jelly stirring occasionally.
   With pastry brush, carefully brush with melted jelly.
   Refrigerate tart till filling is completely set, about
   1 hour.
