grated orange zest
grated lemon zest
Great recipe, Kim! Since I found this one, I'm saving a dollar for every box of jello I used to buy! I cook for many older folks who love softer foods. This one is great and very versatile. Any flavor of fruit juice can be substituted. Thanks for sharing!
This is delicious, fresh and spritely tasting. Also, it has a more 'realistic' fruit color - no day glow here! Used fresh squeezed oj (and zest). Had cream cheese and whipping cream left over from the holidays so I made a topping for it. My husband liked the gelatin so much he asked me to leave off the topping next time. Going to try some other juice combinations. Thanks so much for sharing, Kim! YUM!
Oh my goodness! Fantastic and perfect with simple whipped cream on top. My kids loved this too. I think you could reduce the sugar by 1/4 cup (to 1/2 cup for the recipe) and still be just fine with a bit of tartness.
