Move Over Crystal Pepsi..It’s Crystal Gravy Time

When I started looking at Crystal Pepsi stuff today, I instantly remembered this spoof that ran on Saturday Night Live for Crystal Gravy. Frankly, I think this idea is long overdue. Just because you cover your food, does not mean you shouldn’t be able to see it.

    LOL. I had forgotten about that faux-mercial. I remember being very excited about Crystal Pepsi. My family was the kind of family that really bought into the hype of cola products and the wars that resulted.

    I found a 2-liter of Crystal Pepsi recently when cleaning out an old chest that i had been storing interesting soda cans in. Somehow, maybe 20% of the liquid was gone and the sides of the bottle were sucked in. No leakage, the mysterious clear liquid just seemed to have imploded upon itself. I remember it being pretty good, but with a slightly strange aftertaste.

  3. You CAN make crystal gravy! Corn starch thickens clear! Just make a slurry of equal parts 2 tablespoons starch and water and add it to 1/2 cup water and bring to a simmer. Bam… ‘Crystal Gravy’. Of course, it won’t taste good at all, but it’s something.
