Green Jell-O

Frankly, it’s been underappreciated.

What a sensual festival it is, as least as served at California Pacific Medical Center, jelled to perfection and sliced into precise one-inch cubes quivering with transparent eagerness to abandon themselves in your mouth.

And it’s not just green! You have the additional pleasure of guessing what flavor, many of them quite realistic, the color of the day represents. A delight so fine when no food has passed your lips in days that you’ll need to cut the cubes in half, as an entire cube taken at once causes a sensory overload rather like that of a large, Gulf of Mexico oyster taken whole into the mouth and squished around to extract its briny, coppery sexiness.
