So I tried out the pineapple-in-a-can-with-jello trick. Notice I don’t have the whole can looking pretty and cylindrical and such. That’s because it didn’t quite work out that way. I didn’t wait long enough, so it splooged out of the can only 3/4 jelled. I put it back in the fridge and was able to salvage some slices. I prepared the jello with an extra packet of gelatin, and I think that was key. The texture of the jello wasn’t overly rubbery, but it needed that extra oomph to keep things together.
The burger is seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic from my garden, which I just harvested yesterday.
