I am dreadfully afraid of gelatin.
As a kid, I got wicked sick on Field Day after eating Jello Squares. This happened several years in a row. One year, I had a little league game the evening of Field Day. Black cherry Jello Squares punked me once more, causing me to puke on home plate. I am Jack’s absolute humiliation.* The torment I got for years was oh so fun. Well, it was probably only a couple weeks, but I was a kid, it seems liked years. Ahh, good times. Why I continued to eat the Jello Squares all those years, Ill never know. Let’s call it childhood stupidity. As you can see, my hatred of Jello is justified.
I avoid any recipes that contain gelatin. Just the thought of slimy, mucousy gelatin makes my stomach flip-flop. I hope to turn this fear around. But, I’m not sure where to start. It will not be with Jello squares.
