1 pk (6 oz) semi-sweet chocolate
3 Eggs, separated
1 9 inch baked pie shell
2 pt Fresh strawberries
2 ts Lemon juice
1 pk Unflavored gelatin
1/4 c Cold water
1/4 c Sugar
Heat half and half in saucepan over medium heat. Stir in chocolate

Cook, stirring, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Cool; pour into pie shell.
Chill until set, 2 to 3 hours. Puree 1 pint of the berries with
lemon juice (there should be about 1 2/3 cups puree). Soften gelatin
in water; warm over low heat to dissolve, then stir into berry puree.
Chill until mixture begins to set. Meanwhile, beat egg whites,
gradually adding sugar until soft peaks form. Fold in thickened berry
mixture. Pour over chocolate layer, shill until set. To serve, slice
remaining pint berries; sweeten if desired. Spoon over wedges of pie.
