You're Making What?
This might be one of the most disgusting recipes we have come across in awhile. Blogger RetroRuth from No Pattern Required has been on the hunt for the most foul Mid-Century recipe she can find and boy did she find a winner. Jellied Tongue. Say what you will about tongue, but making a jello mold out of tongue juice, tongue pieces and of course, hard boiled eggs can not be good. Check out the recipe here, complete with plenty of pictures.
