i have great knife skills for an amateur, can turn out fantastic soups, breads, pastries, and whatnot, but i cannot for the friggin' life of me make a jello mold!! what gives?!?!
switched to strawberry jello since the thought of lime jello is beginning to make me whoozy. doubled the quantity in order to fill the mold. completed jello and took to weekly queer as folk viewing.
only one mistake this time, that april pointed out, and, oh, so obvious once she mentioned it! when flipping the jello over, it began to ooze out. so we threw it back in the freezer for a bit. reflipped after soaking briefly in warm water in order to melt the outside for easier slippage. the top still stuck to the mold, and the bottom was still kinda oozy. so, clearly, it needs to set overnight. i am too Gen-X (or Y, or something) and thus lack the patience for jello. that's so depressing.
next time, the fucker sits overnight.
