You have made me think I should prepare some of these in the freezer ! Seriously - set in a shallow dish and photographed with light from behind once frozen. What you think ?

@Ronnie 2¢: Sure, why not? That way you can eliminate the mud and debris. Well, maybe you wouldn't do that, but Lilly would.
