For this treat you will need just a few things:
- 6 Large Oranges
- 2 Small Packets of Peach Jello
- 1 Cup Boiling Water
- 1 Cup Ice Cold Water
- 1 Cup Peach Vodka
- 1/2 Cup Oranges Juice (you will get this from your six oranges)
You will begin by preparing the oranges first. With a sharp enough knife cut all six oranges lengthwise. This means you will cut the oranges from top-to-bottom, NOT like a grapefruit.
Once all of the oranges are cut open, go through and lice around the circular edge between the fruit and the rind- this just makes it easier to slip the fruit out without puncturing the rind.
Now you can take a table spoon or grapefruit spoon and slide it between the fruit and rind to slip the orange out. Set all of the fruit aside, as you will use that in a moment. Take a muffin baking pan and set the empty halved orange rinds on the muffin cups. This makes it easy to fill the rinds with the jello and keep them upright in the fridge.
Take a 1/2 cup measuring cup and squeeze the orange fruit into the cup until it is full. You won't need all of the fruit. Set that juice aside.
Now dump your 1 cup of boiling water into a medium bowl. Stir in the two packets of jello until desolved. Once it is all desolved, pour in the 1 cup of ice cold water, 1 cup of peach vodka, and 1/2 cup of orange juice. Stir for about four minutes.
Take your empty 1/2 measuring cup and move the jello mixture from the bowl to the oranges. I find it is easier to fill the oranges this way, than just tipping the bowl over. I usually fill each orange 3/4 of the way and if I have left over liquid I carefully fill the oranges up.
Carefully take the muffin pan with the orange halves and place it in the fridge. It takes about four hours for the jello to set- but it will still be soft set even then. I usually let mine sit overnight so they are more firm and cut cleaner.
Finally, after you take the oranges filled with jello out of the fridge, you can begin cutting them. I normally cut my half oranges into quarters, but you can cut them as small as you like. Set them out on a plate and enjoy!
