pinch tips: How to Skin Carrots, Potatoes and Apples



Directions Step-By-Step

•6 oz Raspberry jello
•1 pkg unflavored gelatin (for extra firmness)
•3/4 cup whipping cream
•3 cups boiling water
•15 drops green food coloring
•100 flexible straws (or enough to fill your container)
•Tall container (1 quart or 1 liter carton of milk)
1.Combine gelatin in bowl and add boiling water.
2.Let it cool to lukewarm and then add the whipping cream and 15 drops green food coloring.
3.Gather your straws (don’t forget to flex them out) and put them in the container. It’s important that the straws have a tight fit so the jello stays in the straws. For this reason, a 1 liter carton may be better; you will probably get longer worms since there is a tighter fit. If you have a bigger container, a rubber band around the straws is helpful. Or you could just add more straws to fill the container.
4.Add the gelatin mixture to the straw-filled container and let it set until firm.
5.There are multiple ways you can remove the worms from the straws. You can roll a rolling pin over the straws and squeeze them out or you can hold the straws over warm water. The worms will slip right out.

How do you keep the liquid in the straws? I just had a huge mess. Tight with rubberbands and in a tall narrow container. It's still setting so i don't know if I'll have any worms!!

This was absolutely infuriating. Ugh!! I tried making these with my super patient, wonderful 4 year old. He is way more patient than I am and such a sweet heart. I tried every imaginable way possible to keep the liquid in the straws and it was freaking impossible. You couldn't pay me to make these ever again. It is simply not worth the stress. The entire container filled with liquid and pretty much nothing in the straws what so ever. I even tried duck taping the end of the straws and then worried it might somehow poison my son so I ended up duck taping a piece of plastic plate to the bottom (of the straws) and it still filled up the entire container. No offense but this was terrible and way more stress than its worth!!!

Pour about 2 inches of the liquid into the straws, some liquid will be in your container, and place the container in the freezer for 10 min. Once the liquid is frozen, fill the straws up the rest of the way.

I've been thinking about the liquid problem - I'm going to put the straws on bread in the container and push the ends in - it should hold the liquid in until it has set.

Don't worry about the liquid in the bottom of the container. Take my word for it, the straws do have liquid in them. I thought they weren't working either, but no problem. One thing tho, you need to let them set for at least 12 hours. Guaranteed there will be worms!!

I waited until it was semi solid before I even filled the straws. It was like jelly when I added it and never had the trouble everyone is having
