This is a great recipe passed from one neighbor to another, especially when oranges were in season. One will need 1 cup orange juice, 1 tbsp. plain gelatin, ¾ cup cold water, 1/3 cup sugar, 1/8 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. lime juice, ½ tsp. grated orange rind and 2 egg whites.
Soften gelatin in cold water for about 5 minutes, then add sugar, salt, and orange juice plus 1 cup of boiling water. Stir to make sure all are dissolved. As soon as partly congealed, beat with mixer until fluffy. Fold in egg whites, which have already been stiffly beaten. Chill until firm (5-6 hours), then enjoy! Serves 4-5.
