Ingredients

  • 5 tablespoons cold water
  • 3 packages unflavored gelatin (about 3 tablespoons total)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup orange muscat dessert wine
  • 1 1/4 cups Sauternes or similar sweet wine
  • 1 each grapefruit, blood orange, navel orange, tangerine, and Meyer lemon, or another combination

Directions

  1. Combine 5 tablespoons cold water and gelatin in a bowl. Let stand 5 minutes.

  2. Combine sugar, 1/2 cup water, and wines in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until sugar has dissolved. Add gelatin mixture, and whisk until melted. Cook 1 minute. Remove from heat, and pour through a fine sieve into a 9-by-13-inch glass baking dish. Let cool completely.

  3. Cut peel and pith from citrus. Cut each segment from membranes, then cut horizontally into 1/8- to 1/4-inch-thick slices (you will need 1 cup). Arrange in a single layer over gelatin mixture. Refrigerate, uncovered, overnight.

  4. To unmold, run a knife around edge of dish. Using an offset spatula, gently coax gelatin from sides. Invert and turn out onto a cutting board. Trim edges, and cut into 1 1/4-inch squares. Serve immediately, or refrigerate, uncovered, up to 1 day.
