Kook's Korner: Betrothed in Gelatine.

by Robrt L. Pela

I know. I promised a Jell-O recipe this week. But indulge me a little here, while I share with you another absolutely terrifying photograph from The New Joys of Jell-O. I’ll make it up to you next week, I promise.

Meantime, check it out: Someone, circa 1967, has planned her wedding reception menu around Jell-O. I wonder how long this marriage lasted?

Also: Are those glasses of champagne for toasting the bride filled with Jell-O shots? What’s that big, ribbed, white concoction in the foreground? And how come the only wedding guest appears to be the bride’s daughter?

Next week: A recipe for Ring Around the Fruit Mold. I swear.
