Snacking while eGulleting... (Part 3)

Damn. That would about be worth buying an air fryer.

Or in the air fryer?

@kayb 

Hmmm. I think one could. Esp if you prebrown the bread crumbs. 

 

I didn't deep fry though. Just a skim of oil in the Darto. Maybe a mm.  Turned frequently.

I think she is well on her way to being highly successful. My saving grace is that only rarely do I get to visit an Asian store where these might be available.

Well we have synchronicityin spades,. Today on our dear Abra's blog as she we cruises  Asia : "Perhaps you are thinking that Salted Egg Fish Skin doesn’t sound appetizing, but you have no idea. Daryl warned me not to eat them, “unhealthy, and addictive” he said. Right on both counts. I’m just glad I only bought one bag, because they absolutely impossible to stop eating. Trust me on this one."

 I was cleaning out my pantry this morning when I ran across two long-expired boxes of Jell-O.  I was about to toss them but it occurred to me that they could hardly expire and that I used to enjoy a bowl of Jell-O.   And so raspberry Jell-O with a little cream.   I have snacked on worse.

I get that Jello hankering sporadically every few years. It's often consumed with the leftover half-can of sweetened condensed milk from some recipe or other.

I tad off topic but kinda of funny.  I had a question from an Amazon buyer about a container of specialized salt.  He/she wanted to know how long an unopened jar of the salt would keep.  I just told them it would last as long as the earth did but had no way to prove it.

I cannot imagine hankering for Jello.

It crops up with other forms of childhood nostalgia, like Cheez Whiz on celery and certain indefensibly bad pop songs.

 It’s a dominant trait in the gene pool. My sister in England who is fast approaching 90 told me that she too enjoyed some Jello today. Hers was lemon flavoured.

I suspect a lot of hospital kitchens could not function without having jell-o has a fall back menu item.  At least that seems to be the case around here.

I like jello when its made with just a little less water so it becomes kind of chewy. As a kid I liked squishing it thru my teeth, and red was the preferred flavor. Whatever red was supposed to be in the “fruit” spectrum. When I was in my early 20’s and living by myself, my parents came to my apartment when I had the flu to bring me prepared jello. Very nostalgic.

@gfwebvery creative.  What kind of wrapper did you use?  Did they crispen up?  Thanks

Nasoya brand. If I kept turning it crisped. I think I needed a drier filling though.

Yes, my spring roll filling was drained for 20 minutes before stuffing.  Or you could try spraying the roll with oil spray, just briefly.
