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!
This Jell-O is so reminiscent of autumn; the mere scent of it makes me want to buy school supplies. Combine some of fall’s favorite spices, rich orange gelatin, and a little vinegar, for something that will be sweet, tangy, and the perfect reward for anyone who spent upward of four hours raking leaves.
Servings: 6 to 8
Prep time: 15 minutes
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.
