Ina's Tip

How to segment a naartjie – see below

Method

Cheesecake

Mix Cheesecake replacing the liquid with orange juice and only ½ cup (125 ml) of water. Add orange rind and cream/cottage cheese.
This gives a softer texture because the pudding is enjoyed straight out of the glass, it does not need to hold it’s shape as when one turns a cheesecake out.
Spoon mixture into 12 x 125 ml glasses to fill them ⅔ full.
Refrigerate.

 

Topping

Dissolve jelly crystals in boiling water.
Refrigerate until jelly has thickened to the consistency of raw egg white.
Spoon prepared naartjie segments on top of cheesecakes.
Divide jelly over  naartjie segments in glasses.
Cover and refrigerate overnight.
