There's nothing complicated about this naturally simple orange gelatin, made by flavoring freshly squeezed orange juice with warm spices; a fluted mold gives it shape.

Recipe Summary



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water, sugar, cinnamon, zest, and anise seeds if desired, to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and refrigerate for 2 hours. Strain through a fine sieve. Whisk 1 1/4 cups syrup with orange and lemon juices.

  • Sprinkle gelatin over 3/4 cup cooled juice mixture in a small saucepan, and let stand until softened, about 5 minutes. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring until gelatin dissolves. Strain into remaining juice mixture. Pour into a damp 4-cup mold. Refrigerate until set, at least 4 hours or up to overnight. To serve, dip mold in hot water until gelatin loosens, and invert quickly.

This was so bad and such a waste of oranges.. The spice taste was totally out of place in my view and for some reason mine did not set properly. I am new to gelatin from scratch so this may have been a mistake I made but it turned out with rubbery bits in it and not completely set. I had to strain it and used it for popsicles instead.
