There’s Always Room For Jello (maybe not)

Twelve of the most disgusting uses for jello I've ever seen! Number ten is especially visually revolting. Anyone who has even more heinous jello recipes feel free to share in the comments.

Mom, a world class chef (NOT), did wonders with Jello. I've actually had a couple of those.

Orange Jello & shredded carrot was a big favorite
Any Jello & a can of Fruit Cocktail was another

Not sure about using dessert jello as part of a main course, but most of those are just the traditional uses for gelatine. The newcomer is mixing it with fruit juice[*].

Gelatine is an animal product (commonly) made by boiling down the skin and bones of animals, it's long been used as a binding agent and preservative for meats. Traditional pork pies often use gelatine to reduce the amount of fat from the meat that gets into the shortcrust pastry, keeping it firm. width=400

[*The forerunner of today's jellos were calf's foot puddings, where a calf's foot was boiled down, then mixed with sugar and cinnamon and left to set. Yummy!] :cheese:

Number 11: Tongue! The food that tastes you back!

Rabbit in Aspic:

Poached Egg in Aspic, described by one British food reviewer as "like a big wine gum of pus, only not that nice":

The classic of Northern European Charcuterie, Head Cheese!

And of course, King Crimson's "Lark's Tongue in Aspic"
