Gelatin That Goes "Flump" in the Night: Tales of Jell-O Excellence
Check out this amazing pic Bad Grandma received!
This article is about one woman's experience in the great world of Jell-O making. After reading the recipes listed in Bad Grandma’s Recipe Hell recipes: Jell-O: A really fucking fun food, Kristi H. was inspired to share her culinary Jell-O journey and earned herself a free dishtowel in the process.
~Below is Kristi's account of her motivation to create this orange masterpiece:
My sister and I were planning a 50th anniversary party for my parents and we decided to plan the menu around food that was popular at that time, and, of course Jell-O molds were all the rage. That platter of orange glory had canned pineapple chunks and grated carrots suspended in orange flavored Jell-O. Surprisingly (or not), the dish was quite a hit!
~In a follow up message, Kristi describes the best part:
Oh! I forgot to mention the satisfying “flump!” sound the Jell-O made when it landed on the platter. Beautiful.
~And regarding the picture:
Yep, that photo is definitely me....Damn, that was some cute hair!
~I AGREE! And, rock on with your cooking skills babe. It takes a certain kind of bad ass to make orange food AND to coordinate said food with a vintage blouse. You are too damn good.
Do you think you have what it takes?
Bad Grandma suspects that one hasn’t truly lived until having eaten Jell-O with things suspended in it (the chunkier the better). So if you've made a fun mold, pile, or bowl of it and send me photos, I’ll send you the free Bad Grandma dishtowel of your choice. (Just like Kristi!). Or, try out one of our recipes in Jell-O: A really fucking fun food.
As always, if you want to alter the recipe some to make it easier or more pleasant for your palate, go right ahead – I’ll still send ya the towel.
Just send your photos and contact info to grandma (at) badgrandmadesigns.com. I can’t wait to post your jiggly creations.
To gelatin and beyond bitches,
