These are jelly boats, occasionally made by Adam's mother for the kids: It's jell-o set in orange skins. Aren't they adorable?

  5. mix up your jelly (can you tell I'm a Brit?) and allow to start setting.
    Cut your oranges/lemons/citrus fruit in half and scoop out all the inside.
    place on a tray and fill with the setting jelly - allow to set comletely.
    Cut the halfs in half again to get the boat.

    Take some toothpicks and some cut out squares of paper and make the sails and stick into the jelly et voila..... jelly boats!

  6. You know, I actually saw these before, except they were jello shots rather than just jello.

    It's simple really. You cut the fruit in half, scrape out the meat of the fruit, and fill with jello. Once it hardens (or cools, or whatever jello does), you cut the halves in two and you get a jello boat.

  9. Those are AWESOME! If I thought I could get them to survive a 4 hour car trip, I'd make them and take them to my family reunion this weekend.

  10. You know would make them cooler? If you could use one of those Pocky Sticks - one of those covered in either the same or a complementary fruit flavor to the Jello, not the chocolate covered kind - for the mast and edible rice paper for the sail.

  11. This may sound like a random question, but do they float? Wondering if kids could "play" with them before eating?

    Also, you could use fruit roll-ups to make the sails edible.
