This one’s a quickie and dead easy to make. Ideal for Doctor Who themed evenings, Hallowe’en and whenever the kids are bored.
- Red jelly
- Blue jelly
- Milk (any kind, according to personal preference)
Calculate the amount of jelly you’re going to use based on how much you want to end up with on your table. You’re going to use 50% red jelly to 50% blue.
Now, take half of the red jelly and make it up with water, according to the instructions on the packet. This usually boils down to: dissolve the gelatine cubes/crystals/whatever with hot water, then top up with tepid.
With the other half: put it in a separate bowl, dissolve in a little hot water and top up with milk. Do not heat the milk.
Repeat for the blue jelly. Allow to cool.
When all four bowls of jelly are almost set, pour into one big bowl and swirl very gently so that the whole thing looks appropriately timey-wimey with a red-blue shift and eddies in the space-time fabric.
Put the whole thing in the fridge until needed, so that it finishes setting quickly.
Ideally there should be a little TARDIS at the heart of it all, but I’ve never found one suitable for cookery.
