Jelly Oranges

"I made this many years ago to take to a Childrens Christmas party and the kids loved them. I had forgotten all about it until I saw someone bring a plate along to a party this year. So I searched and found this recipe on the Aeroplane jelly site. I made mine with red jelly in some and green in others for Christmas colours and it looked so good against the orange."

  • Make up the jelly with the boiling water and allow to cool slightly.
  • Slice the oranges in half through the ends. Scoop out a tablespoon of pulp from each orange half, and mix through the jelly.
  • Arrange the orange halves facing up on a tray, and carefully fill with cooled jelly and pulp.
  • Refrigerate until set, and then slice each half into wedges.

    I was looking through your recipes to tag one and my daughter seen gailanng's photo and wanted to make them! Since I had lots of oranges to use up, I tagged it! They were so easy to make, a child could help mixing the the water and crystals and then pouring the jelly into the orange "molds" (With the supervision of an adult). I was worried about the jelly, not holding when I sliced them into wedges, but it worked well with a sharp knife. I took the photo for the recipe, then place them into the fridge for desert. When I went back to the fridge to get them, they were all gone. Hubby and Little Miss (DD) confessed to eating them all up, so I didn't get to have a taste. Will have to make them again. Thanks Tisme for a fun kids recipe.

    Made with grandson. He quipped, "These are funny for my tummy." He just may possibly become a great philosopher. Made for A/NZ Recipe Swap #34.
