The Pickle On The Hearth

O Pickle Tree - This is officially my favorite gelatin salad ever! It's made using gelatin, mayonnaise, horseradish, pickles, apples, tongue, green peppers! It's gorgeous! You're welcome!

The Festive Pickle Glazed Yule Log (ham) covered in briny 'mushrooms'

What's your Christmas table without a nice Santapiece?

Or, perhaps, Scott Towels' Jack In The Box Choir Boy is more your style? (He's guardian of the Almond Brittle)

Make holiday cards using seasonal seals available at Woolworth's

Or use scraps of gift wrap to make these really nice paper candle cards. I love the Futurist Noel design!

The Pickle Tree is indeed the apex of gelatin madness. I am stunned and appalled pretty much in equal measure!

Appropriate CAPTCHA: wherfor, as in:

Wherefor art thou, o Pickle Tree?
