Orange Spice Jello

This zesty recipe has a unique flavor that made it a sell-out hit at game night with friends this week. It is made with orange gelatin, peaches, cinnamon, cloves, vinegar, and rum. Yum! The recipe for jello mold will be included in my new book, but I have included it below so you can try it now!


3/4 cup peach syrup (from 1 lb can) or 3/4 cup peach nectar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
12 whole cloves
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 lb can of peaches, chopped, or 2 cups fresh peaches, peeled and chopped
2 (3 ounce) packages of orange gelatin
1 1/2 cup boiling water
3/4 cup rum

In a saucepan, stir together peach syrup or peach nectar, vinegar, sugar, cloves, and cinnamon, and bring to a boil. Add peaches and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove cloves.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, stir boiling water into gelatin until fully dissolved. Stir well into peach mixture. Stir in rum. Allow to cool to room temperature and pour into 6 cup mold. Refrigerate until firm. Unmold and serve.

    We aren’t drinkers, so we left out the rum, and it was still really delicious! Husband said this was probably the best Jell-o he’s ever tasted and I agree. Perfect after the grilled salmon we had for dinner. Thanks so much for posting this.
