Reviews for Orange Lime Gelatin Ring
"SAVED recipe. A beautiful presentation picture! I like another reader's idea of using blackberries in place of grapes. Quite a novel idea!! K."
"Okay, I made this for Easter dinner. Rave reviews by all. Did add some toasted chopped pecans to the mold, because I'll add nuts to meatloaf if I can ;-). The sweet/tart flavor of the gelatin was refreshing, and I added blackberries, so the dish did look like a sunflower. Oh, I almost forgot...I used fresh oranges, supremed instead of canned fruit. It just seemed appropriate."
"Just a thought here...if you substituted blackberries for the red grapes, it'd look just like a sunflower! I'll rate again after I actually make it, but I'm sure it'll be yummy!"
"This recipe makes a beautiful presentation on any table, love to serve it on St Paddy's Day because of the orange & green, & the taste yummy!"
"I ran across this recipe several years ago. I have made this for potlucks and family dinners. It is always a hit,,,no leftovers. It is easy to prepare and looks so pretty on the table. Try it you'll like it."
