Turkey-shaped Jell-O® Mold: 2005

Mold purchased from Yankee Harvest — it's actually taken from a cornish game hen, but then again a true turkey-sized Jell-O® mold would be a bit overwhelming. They include a recipe for realistic flesh-tone, which involves adding lite evaporated skimmed milk (for opacity) and a dash of green food coloring to peach or watermelon flavored Jell-O®. It essentially tastes like regular Jell-O®, but the milk adds nice body, as it turns out.

The bed of pomegranate seeds is my own innovation. Makes for a festive holiday garnish.
