    My other half and I were looking through your gelatin contest. I must say, I think showing him shocked his French sensibilities but I immediately thought of my grandmother’s cucumber and lime jello gelatin salad. It has been a family regular for years. We all quite enjoy it.
    This is a great blog. I totally appreciate what you’re doing here. I am recreating recipes mostly from 100 years ago or older. I really like the shots you have of your Tom trying out some of those gelatin salads. I wonder if my Frenchman would do the same. All I’d have to do is combine meat and fruit and you might see the same looks. LOL

      Glad you like the blog, Nerissa!!! I have to say, making Tom try everything is probably my favorite part of testing recipes. 🙂

    I just found your website last week and I love it. My mother made this, or something very much like it. She did it in a loaf pan, not a ring mold, if I recall correctly, and served it as a light meal with saltine crackers, carrot sticks, and maybe sliced tomatoes.
