aspic on the brain

I realize I’m jeopardizing future dinner invitations by saying this, but I’m oddly fascinated by aspic right now.

aspic!

OK, the above isn’t actually an aspic jelly – but it is a jello salad in a mold, which falls into the same category as far as I’m concerned. I spent a bunch of time last weekend reading my 1943 edition of the Joy of Cooking, which was full of such wonders. I don’t know if I’ll ever bring my aspic dream to fruition – but good lord, they’re weird, and I’m enjoying looking at pictures of them and imagining how anyone found them palatable.
