We had a family reunion today so I whipped up something I’d seen a picture of online. Jello with an fruit twist.
The only tutorial I saw used a juicer to get the pulp out of the oranges. I don’t have one so I just used a spoon to scoop out the fruit after I cut it in half and it worked out perfectly and gave a much cleaner look. Once they were halved I put them in a muffin tin to keep them upright.
I made the jello with a thicker consistency than the typical directions. More like the way you would make jigglers. I used one cup boiling water with one 6 oz package then added a half cup of ice cubes. I made two different packages and it filled 4 oranges with some left over. Could have done another orange (maybe two) but since it was my first time and I was in a hurry I didn’t hollow out any more oranges.
Fill the oranges with the jello to the top. If you’ve poked any holes in your oranges it will become apparent as you are trying to fill them. Having the muffin tin under helps in this aspect since it will catch any spills. After they are set slice them as thin as you would like. I found it easiest to put it jello side down and slice the peel first.
This was such a huge hit that Deeds was sad when they were gone and I should have made a TON more for the reunion. Now we know for next year.
