Like i promised… here is how I made the orange slices shown in this weeks Saturdays Seven. These taste like a supersplit and are delish.
Ill explain this using my example of a mixture that makes 2pints (roughly 1 litre) of liquid.
It really couldn’t be simpler and for it all you need is;
– Oranges (I used 8 )
– Jelly mix
– Boiling Water
– Spiced Rum (I went with good ol’ Captain Morgans… who else!)
– A sharp knife
– Muffin tray
Cut oranges in half and squeeze the juice into a bowl. Sieve the juice to get rid of the pulp and save it until later to add to the jelly mix.
Scoop out the middle of the oranges and place aside.
In a bowl mix together the jelly mix with 1/2 pint (250ml) of boiling water. Stir the mix until it becomes clear and there are no clumps left. This should only take 2-3 minutes.
Add another 1/2 pint (250ml) of the orange juice from the oranges to the mixture and continue to stir until mixed in well.
Its now time for the SPICED RUM, noms!.. Add roughly a pint (500ml) to the mixture and again stir (but gently.. this mix has now become gold). If too strong add less rum and more juice, completely depends on individual taste and aspired intoxication level!
Go back to the halved scooped out oranges. Place them into a muffin tin to give them a place to sit soundly. MAKE SURE they sit with the tops straight or delisious orange jelly goodness will SPILL once pored in. Remember; this is now a golden mix so spilage will result in alcohol waistage… this is bad… you dont waist alcohol… no no no!
Pour delisious mixture very carfully into the halfed oranges remembering the value of this liquid… its not just any-old jelly mix.
Now, with a very steady hand, carefully and smoothly relocate the muffin tins to the fridge for cooling and solidifying of the jelly.
Once the Orange Jelly mix has set take the halfed oranges out of the fridge and with a VERY sharp knife cut them into segments and arrange on a tray.
Bring them to zee partay for enjoyment.
Alternatively if the orange slices are beyond your bother and all you want to do is get quickly wasted, then the mixture can be pored into disposable shot glasses. Also, if they are being made for the novelty of the jelly slices the alcohol can be left out and be substitued with more water and juice… if thats yo thing!
Finally for different arangements i highly sugest scooping out lemons and adding vodka instead of the rum or even with scooped out limes and gin!
Until next time,
