Specimen Jars

Halloween 2004

Fill a few glass vessels more than halfway with colored water (mix 3 drops green or 1/2 drop red food coloring in water; add a few tablespoons milk for murkiness).

Peel off outer layers of a cabbage head for a brain specimen; use a fennel bulb with the fronds cut off for a heart. If a specimen is too large for the jar's opening, cut it in half and stick it back together with skewers once it's inside. With a glue stick, attach a printed or written label on the container.
