Cranberry-Orange Gelatin

Source: Everyday Food, November 2003


  • 4 envelopes (1/4 ounce each) unflavored gelatin
  • 3 cups cranberry-juice cocktail
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 6 oranges, separated into segments, 1/2 cup juice reserved


  1. In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over 1 cup cranberry juice. Set aside to soften, 5 minutes. Place over low heat until gelatin has dissolved, 4 to 5 minutes. Add sugar; stir gently until dissolved (rub mixture between your fingers to make sure it's smooth), 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. Transfer gelatin mixture to a medium bowl; stir in orange juice and remaining 2 cups cranberry juice. Skim any foam from surface, and refrigerate until just thick enough to hold a line drawn by your finger, 30 to 40 minutes.

  3. Arrange orange segments in the bottom of a 1 1/2- to 2-quart gelatin mold or Bundt pan; pour gelatin mixture over oranges. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.

  4. To unmold, dip bottom of mold briefly in hot water, invert onto a plate, and shake firmly to release.

    Best "jello" you'll ever eat. Forget that stuff with the artificial dye and artificial flavors. This doesn't take any more time and can be made with any juice. Absolutely delightful!
