You will need the following:
A brain shaped jello mold.
The jello mold I'll be using I purchased over 20 years ago from the SKS Sibley Company, a 'Qwiggle-gel' Brain Mold. In fact, I found someone on eBay selling the same item. I don't know if they are in business any more but you can find similar molds on Amazon, eBay and elsewhere on the internet. This mold is the largest capacity I have found, approximately 6-1/2 cup capacity. I believe that the finished brain is larger than the anatomically correct equivalent so don't try to fit it into a skull to serve it as its just too big. But, hey, more brain to share.
The recipe I will be using came with my 'Qwiggle-gel' Brain Mold.
- 3 Large boxes of gelatin (6 oz size). I could only find the 3oz size so I show twice as many.
(I use watermelon flavor for the light color, which tints nicely to a grayish hue).
- 1 Can Fat Free Evaporated Milk (12 oz size). For best results this needs to be the fat free type.
- Liquid Food Coloring - Blue and Green (6 drops each) - see text
- Kitchen nonstick spray (Pam, etc.) to spray the mold to prevent the jello from sticking
- 2-1/2 Cups boiling water
- 1 Cup cold water
Bowls, whisk, etc.
