Well and truly cheezed off

I make that seven kilos — 15 pounds — of redcurrants that I picked yesterday. We tried to make jelly from two K of that.

When I googled it, I got a gazillion recipes, and absolutely no two were alike. I picked one, and I can say with confidence that…you absolutely cannot add the sugar BEFORE you strain the fruit through the muslin.

That was a lot of effort for nothing.

Does anybody want a five pound sweet gushy pink mucilage booger?

Somewhere there’s a city that wants that to put on the FatBurger they just cleared from the sanitary drain (that’s the sewer for us common folk).

“mucilage booger”…

I think that’s a band name.

Call up Mary Berry. She’d know what to do.

I’m so sorry. Something about cooking fruit just invites disaster. I don’t understand at all.

I saw Mucilage Booger open for Badfinger at Chuck E. Cheese. They were all terrible.

Sadly, as predicted, we awoke to find a solidified lump of red goo filling the muslin bag.

So, Mr Badger, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to track down the moron who published that recipe and give him or her a good, hard bite.

Mucilage Booger Band and Traveling Roadshow.

Now if only I could read music.

Hey! How about turning it into a Mucilage Melba!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
