Episode 53: Summer Foods from Jell-O Salads to Watermelon

Monday, July 17, 2017
On this week's episode, we are summer-lovin' on all the summer foods, because it's so hot outside! We talk about potato salad (yum!), ambrosia salad (weird!), and Jell-O salad (hit or miss!), then move on to the fun (and deadly) history of watermelons. We also help our Food Fight listener try and practice food safety at all her summer picnics she will be attending in the next few weeks.

Let's taco 'bout it!

Creamy potato salad
  • Ambrosia Salad: Like it or not?
  • Jell-O Salads: Winter loves Jello, so these are generally a win for her. Sharon, it's a hit-or-miss!
  • Did you know the 4 discontinued savory flavors of Jell-O are? Tomato, Vegetable, Italian, and Celery. Those don't sound good at all!
  • Food trends are funny, just like Jell-O once was in the 50s. I wonder what people are going to say about stuff we're into, like kale and the Instant Pot.
  • Winter has eaten "kholodets", a Russian version of aspic, kinda like a meat Jell-O before. It's not bad! Just make sure to spread it on bread--kinda like Vegemite!
  • If you have minute to read this article about the worst vintage recipe that Rebecca Orchant has ever made, it's pretty entertaining. By the way, you can find Rebecca and Sean here if you're ever in Massachusetts.
