"Aspic (AS-pihk)"

In Greek it is called aspis and means a "shield." A clear jelly made from meat stock (or occasionally from fruit or vegetable juices) thickened with gelatin. Used to coat foods or it is cubed and used as a garnish. It also refers to a molded, usually tomato-based, gelatin salad. It is basically the same as jellied consomme, except that more gelatin is added.
