Passionate About Orange Jelly…

“Jelly on plate, jelly on a plate, wibble, wobble, wibble, wobble, jelly on a plate.”

-Traditional Nursery Rhyme

Please note….this jelly is for adults only!


Passion fruit, oranges and Cointreau…my kind of jelly!


Pare the zest from the oranges.


Juice the oranges.


  • 4 sheet of gelatine
  • 4-6 large oranges
  • 200 ml of hot freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 300ml of cold juice
  • 50ml Cointreau
  • 2 tbs icing sugar
  • 2 passion fruit


Soak the gelatine in cold water.


Whisk the gelatine into the  juice, Cointreau, icing sugar and orange zest.


Pour into moulds and top with the passion fruit.


  1. Soak the sheets of gelatine in cold water for 5 minutes.
  2. Pare the oranges and cut the zest into fine strips.
  3. Squeeze the oranges, then add water to make up to 500ml.
  4. Heat gently 200ml of orange juice, zest, cointreau and the icing sugar.
  5. Remove from the heat.
  6. Squeeze out excess water from the gelatine and whisk into the warm orange juice and Cointreau.
  7. Top up with the cold juice, stir.
  8. Rinse the moulds with cold water, then almost fill with the jelly mixture.
  9. Scoop out the seeds from the passion fruit, then top up the mould with more jelly.
  10. Leave to cool completely the refrigerate overnight to set.
  11. To serve, dip the mould into some hot water, to loosen the jelly from the sides, then turn out on to a plate.


Heat a few spoonfuls of Juicy Orange & Basil Jam to make a lovely syrup for the jelly.


Top with some Candied Peel.


Fresh, fruity, an impressive adult jelly…now serve with a Cointreau shot!
