HOLY MACKEREL!

THEY KEEP MAKING UP MASSACRES, DISASTERS AND OTHER FEAR MONGERING ALTERNATIVE FACTS THAT JUST SIMPLY NEVER EVER EVEN HAPPENED, NEITHER HERE NOR ABROAD!

The fact of the matter is that the people whom voted for this monstrosity already believed in anything DJT and his administration has to say… They have been living a privileged existence, a fishbowl of white ignorance for centuries on the backs of Black and Brown folks. You cannot expect to make much sense of why people believe this and instead challenge the lies. Trumpsters know no more about real life than a common, Walmart betta fish knows about the oceans, the seas and every living creature therein.

Since Sweden is hot right now I thought Swedish Fish would be perfect recipe to share. You can use any candy mold, but if you want to be true about making a knock off version of a childhood favorite (I know I am!) any arts and craft stores sell fish shaped molds. Anyways, I have been wanting to introduce ya’ll to more homemade candy recipes that are easy enough to make with the kids, in your dorm or just because wine gum candies are good and so easy to make!

1 package of berry flavored gelatin
7 packs of unflavored gelatin powder
1/2 cup cold water

Combine dry ingredients well in a sauce pan. Add 1/2 cup cold water to the gelatin mixture and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until gelatin should clump up into a ball. Move the saucepan to a stove set to medium heat. Stir the mixture constantly until it has melted back into liquid form. Pour liquid into fish molds with spoon, gently tapping the mold each time on the counter to get the mixture to into each crack of mold. Freeze for about 15 minutes and then gently peel away fish.
