The boys call this recipe "alien soup", obviously from the color. They came up with this version: put a small alien in a blender with 1 litre of acid, do not salt (the alien is naturally salty) and blend about thirty seconds, serve immediately.
Several days in the fridge, in a closed jar.
Home made.
