Russian Kholodets... - Secret World

Mosca, Russia

Laura Spencer


Meat jelly, or aspic, has been a staple around the world for centuries, and is a popular dish served with salads or as an appetizer. Certain cuts of meat contain a lot of gelatin, and so these parts are boiled overnight, and the resulting liquid is mixed with meat and vegetables and cooled to a solid. Try kholodets with carrots, garlic, and boiled egg as an appetizer before your meal.
