Post updated 2/11/2015: The mild, delicious Fuzzy Navel was our very first two layer jelly shot, and as such, possibly the first in the world. Now it seems like every other one is layered. Sigh. Simple times. Good times!
The jelly shots shown above were set in a loaf pan, cut out with tiny round cookie cutters, and then loaded onto wooden toothpicks.
Below is one of the very first pictures of jelly shots we ever created! Back in 2009! The paleolithic era of jelly shots. What a long way jelly shots have come in the last six years. We feel like proud parents. Enjoy!
Fuzzy Navel Jelly Shots
- ¾ cup peach juice or peach nectar (strained through a fine sieve to remove solids)
- ¼ cup peach schnapps
- 1 envelope plain Knox gelatin
In a saucepan, sprinkle the peach nectar with gelatin. Allow gelatin to soak for a minute or two. Heat on low, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved, approximately 5 minutes. Add the schnapps, stirring well, and pour into pan or molds. Refrigerate until set (about an hour). Prepare orange layer.
- 1 1/3 cups orange juice (strained through a fine sieve to remove solids)
- 2/3 cup peach schnapps
- 2 envelopes plain Knox gelatin
In a saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin over the orange juice. Let soak for a minute or so. Heat on low, stirring constantly, until gelatin is fully dissolved (approximately 5 minutes). Add the schnapps, stirring well. Pour over the set peach layer. Return to refrigerator and allow to set, several hours or overnight.
To serve, cut into desired shapes. Makes 24-30 shots
Note: Make sure to strain the orange juice (even if using a "pulp free" variety) to ensure a silky-textured shot. If your orange juice isn't top-notch, try mixing in a tablespoon or two of orange juice concentrate.
