sad......but you didn't know, daveso......I would have thought it would have been good, too...did the broth evaporate away or did they just have too many cloves in it in which case it would have been overwhelmed anyway....

Expat,
No, nothing evaporated, I think if I had cooked it for maybe 3/4 hours it would have been fine, but after 10 hours the OJ cooked too long and the flavors became too intense.

My worst (and ironically the most painful) kitchen disaster was one time I was working up my own recipe for Pumpkin Fudge. I had figured out a way to modify my usual base for Peanut Butter and/or Chocolate fudge by adding pumpkin and pumpkin spices.

The result was a somewhat lava like consistency that reacted in the same way. Basically, every time a bubble would come to the top of the pan, it would burst with a somewhat amazing force. I had a sweetened, soft-ball staged concoction on the ceiling, floor, my arm, face, and just about everything else in the kitchen. It was painful, but something Sarah and I still laugh about.

Interesting note about making the different types of fudge. I use Fudge as a way to collect donations every year for the "Relay for Life" cancer walk. I sell it for $25.00 a pound, with all proceeds going towards the Relay. At my work, sweets sell big. It's gotten to a point where people are lining up when the annual event takes place, just waiting to buy fudge. I make Peanut Butter, Chocolate, Cookies & Creme, Butterscotch, and Pumpkin (I did finally figure out a good recipe). I usually average about $1000.00 a day selling it for Relay.. Just thought it was worth mentioning for those of you who have charities. Sweets always sell!

You guys are killing me! I'm totally laughing at these stories. If anyone needs a fun prank, my favorite (of many - it's how I work) was what I did to my mom when I was a teenager. She used to ask me to hop up and get her stuff when I was comfortably settled in, which sort of annoyed me sometimes. One night when she asked for a glass of milk, a dropped a raisin in the bottom. She drank it all the way down, then got to the "thing" partially covered in milk in the bottom. I sat there about to burst, while she asked (and I'll always remember this one - ) "Was this glass clean when you took it down to use it?"

My worst was when I decided to bake a cake from scratch for my son's first birthday. (Actually several small cakes and different sizes of cupcakes to make the Baby Einstein caterpillar.) I used the wrong measuring spoon and put in twice as much baking powder and baking soda as I was supposed to. I was up all night cleaning the oven. I made a second attempt the morning of the party, with better results, except that they didn't have time to fully cool before I had to frost them and the frosting got all melty and drippy.


For his second birthday, the control panel on the oven shorted out the day before his party and I had to bring the cakes to a friend's house to bake them. I shudder to think what will happen this year.
