After a few glorious days this week of blue skies and warm sunshine, the promise of spring’s arrival planted it’s little seed in my step… And then it was over. Here we are, back to grey skies, cool winds and sporadic rain storms. So if you need some colour back in your days like I do, here’s a lovely vibrant orange snack that you and the kids will love. A perfect vitamin boost to send winter on its way.
Yesterday I posted a recipe for apple and pear jelly here and after a reader’s question thought it would be useful to post a very simple and delicious jelly recipe that doesn’t require a wiz bang juicer.
4-5 oranges, juiced to make 2 cups liquid
1tablespoon powdered gelatine. I use Great Lakes Gelatine which is from healthy grass fed cows. You can buy it here
Heat half a cup of orange juice gently on the stove.
Turn off heat and whisk gelatine into liquid.
Combine well with remaining juice.
Pour into cups, moulds etc and refrigerate for at least an hour.
* I use Sinchies reusable squeezy pouches to fill with my jelly. (Formerly known as “Squeezems” as pictured above)
* This recipe easily filled 6 x 80ml pouches.
* If you want a firmer jelly, use up to two tablespoons Gelatine.
* My kids and I love this jelly exactly as is and if you love fresh oj, you will too. However, if your kids are used to something sweeter you could add 1-2 tsp of honey when heating the liquid.
Enjoy fresh, real jelly with no artificial junk 🙂
