1/4 Photos of Jello Fruit Wedges
3 hrs 15 mins
I made these fun little guys for my 14 mo. old nephew and they were perfect! Being so young, it was better for him to eat a "Jello orange" than a real one. These were a hit with the whole family--not just the kids! Originally I found the recipe somewhere online, and I have found that its best to keep to the orange flavors, as other rinds have a more bitter taste that changes the taste of the Jello.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Slice the fruit cleanly in half lengthwise (through the axis).
- 2Carefully remove the pulp while keeping the half rind fully intact.
- 3Ensure that the rinds are dry (you can use paper towels to blot them).
- 4Set each half rind upright in a muffin pan so you can fill it with Jello.
- 5Mix the water with the gelatin (just like you would to make jigglers).
- 6You'll want the Jello a little firmer than the normal recipe as you have to slice it in half again.
- 7Make sure that the gelatin is well dissolved, and then pour into the fruit before it begins to set.
- 8Fill up as high as you can, the Jello will shrink a bit when cooling.
- 9Carefully transfer to the fridge and let set for about three hours, per box directions.
- 10When the Jello is set, place the fruit open-side down on a cutting board, hold it's shape with one hand and carefully slice in half lengthwise again to form quarters.
- 11Be careful not to smash the fruit as you'll want to keep the Jello intact (you may use a serrated knife).
- 12Ready to serve!
