Can you substitute crab juice for Mountain Dew? (Obscure Simpsons reference...for serious fans. )

Ya know what? This is a seriously warped bunch of folks. But...in a good way!

Now back to our program, already in progress...

Think outside the box. Perhaps making jellies out of various soft drinks is a wonderful idea. Consider some of the citrus-based ones as an accompaniment to pork, chicken, etc. This could be a "good thing," in the words of Martha Stewart.

Can't help out on the soda jelly, but I have an excellent recipe for braised Little Debbie cakes with a crushed Cheez-It Gratin topping. I usually serve it with a good can of vintage pull-tab Coca-Cola.

Seriously, if you put me in a room with a 6pk of Dew, the thought of making jelly with it wouldn't have come to me to save my life. I bet this could be marketed for a zillion bucks in the US. Even if they just released it as a fad product, it would make millions!

You could package it in little foil pouches for the Red-Bull skate/snow boarding crowd. I see dollar signs... whats that sound??? *cha-ching... cha-ching*...

Excuse my ignorance, Raine. I have not the foggiest idea what "Mountain Dew" is...

Clive, it's an insanely (at least IMO) sweet yellow-colored soft drink.
If we weren't meant to eat animals, then why are they made of meat?

Actually... I hesitated to mention it earlier, but you can make jelly using sparkling wine. Cava jelly was a hit among English teachers in Barcelona a few years back. Dissolve the jelly in a small amount of very hot water. Leave to cool but not set and then top up with cava, stir gently and leave to set. You don't get a huge amount of fizz, but enough so as you know it's there.
