Thursday Recipe – Eyeball Gelatin

June 24, 2010 at 5:08 pm 2 comments

Just for kicks, and because I can, I made a bowl of eyeball gelatin for the camp tonight. It looks utterly disgusting. I can’t wait for their reactions, especially when I munch on a juicy eyeball.

I specialize in food with disgusting names and appearances that really taste pretty good. I’ve got an entire menu based on the dinner scene from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Bugs, eyeball soup, snake surprise, chilled monkey brains – yep, all there and all delicious because they aren’t really what you might think they are.

So for today, enjoy a bowl of delicious eyeball jello.

Eyeball Gelatin

2 boxes peach gelatin
1 can lychees (look for them in the oriental section)
about a dozen small red grapes

Mix gelatin according to directions on the box. Set it aside to thicken. Open and drain the lychees. Insert a grape into each lychee. Doesn’t it look like an eyeball? If the lychees fall apart, you can either discard them or put them in anyway as chopped eyeball parts. Gently fold your eyeballs into the gelatin. Refrigerate until set.

Serve and wait for the comments.

    So, what were the comments? Did you manage to gross out the kids?

      Mostly they were, “What is this? Eyeballs? Yuck!” Although I did have a couple of girls who responded, “Jello? I love Jello! And the eyeballs are yummy.” They made me laugh.
