As some of you might know, I got the privilege to enjoy the fruit from my In-Law’s wonderful garden. They have Meyer Lemons, Kumquats, Figs, Tangerines, Red Dates, Pomegranate, Guava, etc. Okay, I probably missed over 5 or 10 of them! The list simply goes on and on. One of the fruit that my whole family loves are the super sweet oranges that we get to hand-pick whenever we visit. Or better yet, we sometimes get a special delivery from my In-Laws when they visit us. I got a few bagful of these gorgeous oranges a while ago and couldn’t finish them all at once. So, what do we do with them beside sharing some with the neighbors? Of course, turn them into Fresh Orange Jello Slices!
It was around the time when my Baby Girl had a class presentation to do, they called it the Star Student of the week. One of the things that the Star Students share with the class is what they like to do in their spare time. My Little Girl loves cooking with me, and so she helped me make these Orange Jello Slices the day before her presentation and share them with her class. With many allergies and restrictions in today’s classrooms, these Fresh Oranges Jello Slices were perfectly safe and fun to share! After all, there are only 2 ingredients in the recipe! Yup, you read it right. Two ingredients! These oranges were so sweet that I didn't even need to add sugar to sweeten them up at all. The kids at school loved them so much and many went for seconds.
Come watch the video tutorial and see how I made them.

Fresh Orange Jello Slices:
1 3/4 cup fresh oranges juice, (from 3 to 4 large oranges)
1 package of unflavored gelatin (7grams)
Wash and pat dry the oranges. Cut them in half. Juice the oranges with a juicer. Place a fine mesh over a measuring cup and strain the orange juice. Stir with a spoon to help the juice pass through the mesh. Discard pulps.
With a spoon, scrape off the remaining flesh and membrane inside the orange peel. Place in a muffin pan, set aside.
In a small saucepan, add the unflavored gelatin and 1/4 cup of the fresh orange juice, let mixture bloom for 5 minutes.
After 5 minute, add 1/2 more cup of the fresh orange juice into the saucepan. Heat over medium heat and stir with a wooden spoon until gelatin completely dissolved, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Then, pour the gelatin mixture into the remaining orange juice, stir to combine. Evenly divide the gelatin-orange juice mixture into the prepared orange cups.
Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or until set. Slice into wedges and serve.
