Have you ever had some Russian candy that's made out of sesame or something like that? I did, and I really like it. Too bad I forget its name.

At a block party back when I lived on base, one of my neighbors came up with some jalapeno ice cream. It tasted like green or poblano pepper, except that it was spicy as heck. Cold and spicy. So weird.

Also, meat in gelatin is a common element of classic French cooking, except the gelatin is a savory aspic. And given the relations of France and Russia (pre-revolution Russia), it's entirely possible France's where the dish started.

Very possible.... I've picked up various traces of fracophilia in the Russian culture...

Head cheese is meat in gelatin. Tell her she can make fun of it. Our culture certainly does.
