Scariest Vintage Recipes #5: Macaroni Aspic

This one is from January 10, 2010. I know aspic is decidedly vintage, but this one was likely popular in NO era...

Kyle and I found this gem of an Antique shop in Wheaton, IL - MDL Sales: which has lovely things with great owners. The store has a huge selection of vintage clothing and accessories but lots of kitchenalia and fascinating jewelry as well. One of the mother/daughter owner team found me this gem of a cookbook from 1934 about "Royal Aspic: The headliner in Today's Food News!" The second picture is of the back cover.

1 package Royal Gelatin Aspic
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cup cold water
2/3 cup Russian Dressing
1 cup cooked elbow macaroni
2/3 cup chopped white cabbage (Yes, I'm not even kidding!)
2 tablespoons minced pimiento
2 tablespoons minced green pepper

Dissolve Royal Gelatin Aspic in boiling water; add cold water. Chill until it begins to thicken. Beat in Russian Dressing. Add remaining ingredients. Pour in mold. Chill until firm. If desired, add few drops Worcestershire Sauce or onion juice. (As if it wasn't gross enough.)
