Ingredients

Orange Layer

Cream Layer

Instructions

To Make The Orange Layer

  • In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup orange juice and 7 teaspoons gelatin. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan combine the rest of the orange juice with 2 tablespoons honey and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • Heat over medium-low heat until the mixture is hot but not boiling.
  • Whisk in the gelatin mixture until completely it is dissolved. Taste and add more honey if needed.
  • Divide evenly between ramekins or mason jelly jars. I placed 1/3 cup in seven of these jars.
  • Place containers in the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up. Once the orange layer is firm it's time to make the cream layer.

To Make The Cream Layer

  • In a small bowl mix together 1/3 cup cream and 1 tablespoon gelatin. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan combine the rest of the cream with 4 teaspoons honey and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • Heat over medium-low heat until the mixture is hot but not boiling.
  • Whisk in the gelatin mixture until completely it is dissolved. Taste and add more honey if needed.
  • Divide evenly between ramekins or mason jelly jars. I placed just a little over 2 tablespoons into seven of these jars.
  • Place back in the fridge and allow the cream layer to firm up for another hour or two before serving.

Notes

Feel free to use whatever size ramekins you’d like. I find that 4 oz jelly jars make a nice size serving, come with handy lids, and are easy to transport.
