- Cut the oranges in half. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon very carefully so as to not pierce or rip the peel.
- You can also juice the oranges and then scoop out the pulp with a spoon, but this is a harder way to get the peel nice and clean.
- Whichever way you choose, get the juice form the oranges and pass it through a sieve so it can be more translucent. Reserve 100 g and drink the rest!
- On most of the packages of jello on the market, the directions direct you to use 250 g hot water and 250 g cold water.
- We are going to use much less water than that because we want our jello to be much thicker and firmer.
- Add 250 g of water to a pot and bring to a boil.
- When it does, remove from heat and add the gelatin powder. Stir until it dissolves.
- Add the 100 g of freshly squeezed orange juice and stir.
- Spread a generous amount of sugar in a tray. This will help the orange halves stay in place and not topple over when pouring the liquid jello in them. Place the oranges over the sugar and gently push them in the sugar so they can stay in place.
- Carefully pour the liquid jello in the orange halves. Refrigerate overnight.
- Then next day, when the jello is nice and firm, cut each orange half into 2 or 3 slices.
- Beat the brown sugar and mint leaves in a blender until it is finely ground.
- Sprinkle aromatic sugar over slices.
