I recently discovered a product called Queen’s ‘Jel-it-in Vegetarian Gelling Powder’ at a Woolworths store. It’s an Agar-base gelling powder and it is easy to use. Sometimes I prefer to use Agar or Kanten rather than Gelatine. For this orange juice jelly, definitely Agar is the best option. And Queen’s ‘Jel-it-in’ dissolves very well. I will be using this product for rest of my life.
Orange Juice 500ml
Agar Agar 8g *I used Queen’s ‘Jel-It-In Vegetarian Gelling Powder’
Sugar 2 to 3 tablespoons
Grand Marnier 1 teaspoon *optional, ‘Grand Marnier’ is an orange-flavoured liquor
Canned Mandarin Segments 1 can (310g)
- Place Orange Juice, Sugar and Gelling Powder in a saucepan. Mix well, and bring to the boil, stirring well. Once it started boiling, remove from heat.
- Drain the canned Mandarin Segments to remove the syrup.
- Place the Mandarin Segments in glasses, jelly moulds or container. Pour the orange mixture over, and shake a little bit to remove any bubbles around the Mandarin Segments.
- When cool enough, cover with lids or plastic wrap and place in the fridge for a few hours or until completely set.
