“Tired of the flat flavor of store bought orange gelatin? You can make your own with this simple recipe of gelatin, orange and lemon juice and zest and sugar.” - by Kim
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- In a medium bowl, soak gelatin in cold water for 5 minutes. Add boiling water, stirring until gelatin dissolves.
- To 3 tablespoons of the orange juice add the orange and lemon zest; set aside for 5 minutes.

"Great recipe, Kim! Since I found this one, I'm saving a dollar for every box of jello I used to buy! I cook for many older folks who love softer foods. This one is great and very versatile. Any flavor..." See more of fruit juice can be substituted. Thanks for sharing!"

"This is delicious, fresh and spritely tasting. Also, it has a more 'realistic' fruit color - no day glow here! Used fresh squeezed oj (and zest). Had cream cheese and whipping cream left over from the..." See more holidays so I made a topping for it. My husband liked the gelatin so much he asked me to leave off the topping next time. Going to try some other juice combinations. Thanks so much for sharing, Kim! YUM!"
