How to Gross Your Mother Out in Three Ingredients or Less

I have lots of fun with my kids, but every once in a while I get myself in trouble. For instance, the day my kids and I found what is possibly one of the grossest science experiments from Beakmanís World...

Here it is -- donít say I didnít warn you!



1/2 cup Water
3 packages of Unflavored gelatin
Light corn syrup; * see note


1. Heat 1/2 cup water just until it boils.

2. Remove from heat.

3. Sprinkle in 3 envelopes of gelatin. Let it soften a few minutes, and stir with a fork.

4. Add enough *corn syrup to make 1 cup of thick glop.

5. Stir wit the fork and lift out the long strands of gunk.

6. If it thickens too much, add more water.

Supposedly you could even eat this stuff Ö but the very idea was truly disgusting!! I tried using a flavored gelatin, but it just didnít work properly, you definitely need to use the unflavored kind. Although, using a few drops of food coloring may improve the look somewhat Ö but donít bet on it. This is truly gross looking!!
