4-6 nice firm oranges with nice looking skins. (could use grapefruit & grapefruit juice too. Would need to add some Splenda to take the edge of the tartness of the grapefruit though).
1 46oz can unsweetened orange juice
1 box un-flavored gelatin
1 can lite whipped topping
Wash & dry oranges and cut crosswise, in half.
using a grapefruit knife carefully remove the orange pulp. Be careful not to puncture the orange peel. place 1/2 oranges on a plate or cooling rack. Place them together to avoid them getting knocked over. Sit aside. Make gelatin mix as per directions on box. Make sure there are no lumps in your gelatin mix. Cut the orange pulp into very small pieces and place into a medium saucepan. Slowly pour in the gelatin orange juice mixture, stirring all the time to prevent any lumps from forming. Bring mix to a slow boil then remove from stove. Slowly fill each of the orange halves with the boiled mixture, making sure that none of them get knocked over. Put in refrigerator until set. Once set remove from fridge and cut into quarters or wedges. Let guests apply whipped topping if they so desire. Enjoy!
