DIY Eyeballs

MARTHA STEWART
Halloween 2000

Creepy ice cubes that appear to contain eyeballs that will horrify guests, or your family, are worth the effort.
Ideal for a macabre martini on the rocks, a ghastly glass of flavored seltzer or make an ordinary glass of water
something to scream about. Drink up!

_____________________________________________________________

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

14 medium radishes
Look for radishes that are fairly uniform in size,
and small enough to fit nicely into your ice-cube tray.

7 pimiento-stuffed olives, halved crosswise

paring knife

small melon baller

ice-cube tray
_____________________________________________________________

DIRECTIONS:

Trim stem and root ends of radish.

Use a paring knife to scrape red skin from radish, leaving just enough to give the radish a veined appearance.

Rinse the radish off, and with a small melon baller, cut a hole in radish about 1/2 inch in diameter.

Fit an olive half, cut-side facing out, into hole. Place radish in ice-cube tray.

Repeat this process with remaining radishes until the tray is full. Pour water over the eyeballs, filling tray; freeze.
