Melt one Zooper Dooper ice block
(Deep Space Lime) until the cosmic
flavour shimmers in the pan. Reduce
heat and pour into a tiny glass vial.
In another pot, boil one shoe found
in the ocean (Mediterranean if you can
get it, otherwise Pacific will do)
until the leather is soft, while still retaining
its salty tang.
Drain shoe, taking care to collect any fish bones,
seaweed and other debris that may have caught
in laces. Simmer these for two minutes.
Add one splash of cosmic flavour reduction and tip
onto plate. Serve with or without shoe.
