Lobster Relish Jell-O


From Davis Dainty Dishes (1948) by Davis Gelatine [Photo: Shelf Life Taste Test]

Unlike the bacon pancake post that Miss Cellania wrote last week, certain things that are delicious really don't belong together. Case in point, this lobster relish creation above, which combines lobster and gelatine (Jell-O). Now, I like lobster and I love Jell-O, but the thought of them combining is giving me the ooies.

Matt Stopera of BuzzFeed has a list of 12 terrifying culinary creations made with Jell-O. Each one is more horrifying than the last. Read at your own risk: Link - Thanks Eric!

Ironically, if you actually read the recipe, it calls for a packet of gelatine. It's not sweet - just a thickening agent.
Obviously most people think of only the sweet, flavored jello. Which is sad...because it also indicates people don't know how to cook from scratch anymore either.
I have made a crab jello mold similar to this and it was wonderful.

I would love to make that mushroom one and take it to a potluck and surreptiously drop it off at the serving table. Then to stand back and watch peoples faces as they encountered it while moving through the line.

Bah, small-minded. I remember gelatin-covered meats in Russia that were all very delicious. The key is that not all gelatin is sweet.

They aren't kidding. I was given this book as a birthday gag... Every page in that book is straight from the pit of hell! Culinary disaster at it's best!!!
