My sister-in-law Margaret asked me to make this for Thanksgiving. I had never heard of it before! I had to scour the internet for a recipe and sort of melded several together to make it the way she wanted it. You can also add pineapple tidbits as well as oranges to the gelatin.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the oranges, pineapple and gelatin. Mix well and chill for 1/2 an hour.
  2. Add sour cream to fruit; stir to mix.
  3. Gently fold in whipped topping; chill and serve.

This is another of those I-remember-way-back-when' recipes ~ VERY, VERY NICE! I did add an extra can of mandarin oranges, but then I really like 'em! Thanks you for the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]

To stretch this recipe, I use the drained fruit juice,add 1/3 cup cold water and 1 pkg Knox unflavored gelatin to it,let it set until soft, then heat, stir until dissolved. Pour into a small bowl to set, then whip and add to fruit with the sour cream, then add the whipped topping. This is a good make ahead recipe, do it all except the whipped topping and do that right before serving. You "melded" the right ingredients Gillian Spence! Thanks for posting!
