Aspic

One of my absolute favorite things on this Earth is to come across old cookbooks at garage sales or thrift shops and look at the pictures. Seriously, some of the things that were considered appetizing only 20 - 30 years ago will boggle your mind! And the best of all of these?

Aspic.

Oh yes. Think "savory Jello". We're talking meats and veggies suspended in a gooey, gelatin mess, molded into fabulous shapes that you can serve up at your next dinner party or potluck to impress your friends. It's so absolutely horrifying, so completely disgusting, so terrifyingly revolting... and yet, I'm fascinated by it. Each one is a little bit grosser than the next. It even has it's own Flickr group. Check it out!
