Orange Agar-Agar Jelly, so refreshing!


These few weeks weather here is so hot and humid, "tak boleh tahan" the heat..We need a lot of cool drinks and cool jelly to cool us down.. When i saw this recipe in Rachel aka 温馨小厨 blog, i immediately make it!
My children love this jelly very much...I should have make more..

I feel this orange jelly also perfect for our Malay members during break Fast (Buka Puasa).

The texture of this jelly is slightly firm, so we can even remove the whole segment from the "shell". Try to get those oranges with thicker skin, so it can hold the shape well. I bought the type of orange called "Bak Cham"..

Great idea for warm weather!! I made a mandarin one last time, but I think orange would be nicer (and more economical too!). My Mum loves jelly and these are so much better than the packaged powders.

What an excellent idea to use the orange 'skin-shell' as moulds for jelly! Would the skin impart some flavour to the jelly?
