Recipe - Friday 5 Minute Freewrite

in Freewriterslast year (edited)

Today's Day 861: 5 Minute Freewrite: Friday - Prompt: toe jam provided by @mariannewest. I am trying to still process what happened yesterday so was not able to get my freewrite for yesterday done until now. I am posting this one first though as I like it and find it to be a bit silly.

And at @wakeupkitty's suggestion I am submitting this for the The Fourth Nonsense Writing Contest by @rycharde.

Toe Jam
Origins : unknown, presumed Roman
(This recipe was found in a Roman crypt and has been translated and updated to current available materials.)

In a large vessel combine:
2 kilos foot detritus
1/2 kilo belly button muck
4 kilos sugar juice
2 ground horse hooves
1/2 kilo crushed berry of choice

Bring to a boil over a large fire and hold for 15 minutes. On a clean swept marble floor pour contents into a corral and let cool. When cool cut into pieces to be salt coated and stored.

(Note from translator: The recipe produces a Jello like product that is suitable for use as a jam or jelly but is stable and able to be salted for long term storage. No known examples have been discovered.)

Ha ha ha! I'm glad there isn't any surviving jars of this! :)

REALLY! Wouldn't surprise me if humanity had something akin to this in history... Worse things have been eaten.

Se ve maravilloso

That sounds like a great recipe to me. How about joining the nonsense contest with it?
