What happened with the jelly

Jelly. In a mottled glass bowl. Well, you can see it is red, but that's about all...

You can't really see that there is a layer of horseradish on the bottom. I think this could have been avoided if I'd waited for the jelly to stiffen up a bit more before adding the other ingredients. I imagine that in a perfect jellied beet salad, the horseradish is evenly distributed, but what do I know?

Here it is on an orange plate.

There was a bit of an issue with the unmoulding. You have to warm it up a tiny bit to liquify the jelly on the outside so it slides out of the bowl nicely. You can get thin metal moulds to do this properly, but I don't have one, so used a glass bowl. So, we had to warm it quite a bit, got carried away and warmed it too much = a bit too much liquid jelly on the plate. 

I think the layer of horseradish is a bit off-putting. It doesn't glisten with lovely beet colour the way it should, I think. 

But people ate it, a bit. My neighbour had some of the leftovers today and said, "that taste was great and refreshing!!" And that's good enough for me!

  1. Well, Congrats even if there was liquid. The compliment makes it all worthwhile, eh?
