I have a bottle of Herbsaint that I bought in New Orleans that I want to use up soon. I'm thinking about making jello-jiggler type thingies with it and some Knox gelatin. Does anyone have any experience making jigglers? After doing some research online, it seems they're trickier than I thought.
Also I'd like to add something else to them? What goes nicely with anise-like flavor liquor - orange zest? cream?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can share!
Remember not to substitute all of the water in the jello recipe with herbsaint or it won't jell. I attended a party years ago where there very young hostess made vodka jigglers and they never set. Poor thing was forced to sort of slide them into glasses; they looked like something ectoplasm-y from the movie Ghostbusters.
But it seems to me that herbsaint jigglers could make a fascinating dessert salad.
Thanks for that! It looks like I should do some experimenting, too - before tomorrow night. Since I'm dealing with 90 proof - plus, I want mine to be more like a finger food.
Use twice the gelatin for the same amount of liquid as the recipe on the box. The final product will be much firmer and easier to eat as a finger food. Are you gonna top some kind of appetizer with these or something? Maybe some kind of dried fruit?
