Remove the pips and mince the oranges. Place in a heavy-bottomed saucepan and add the sugar. Heat slowly, while stirring continuously, until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil and boil for 30-45 minutes over medium heat. Stir regularly to prevent the mixture from sticking to the bottom of the saucepan. Remove from the heat and sprinkle the jelly and gelatine over the mixture. Stir until dissolved. Pour the mixture into a flat bowl lined with plastic. Stand for 2 days to set. Cut into squares and remove from the plastic. Arrange on a shelf or tray in a cool, dry place. Stand for 1 week until dry or until the sweets no longer feel sticky. Roll in orange or lemon jelly powder and pack between layers of waxed paper in airtight containers. Store in a cool place. Makes about 500 g sweets.
