"prepare orange pulp first

put "left-over" orange juice in the cup and finish filling the cup with warm water and heat to boiling...dissolve orange gelatin...finish preparing the recipe as given...better flavor...fresher
jean good"

"I found that leaving the cups in the freezer for 2 hours was not necessary and took too long to defrost. I also found that one needs to have oranges that are flat on stem and blossom ends or they do not set well in dishes. I agree that they were time consuming.

"I made this recipe for my girlfriends birthday. It doesn't take long in the refrigerator b/4 you can put into orange cups. I would take out of freezer and set b/4 serving. We put in microwave for 30 sec. and it was a big hit."

MY REVIEW

"I made this recipe for a gathering that I attended of my girlfriends, most of whom I have known for more than 40 years. They absolutely loved it, but I do suggest that you take it out of the freezer a while before serving so that it has time to soften a bit."
