Terrible Food Photographed Terribly

Ever pick up an old cookbook and marvel at how unappetizing all the recipes are? Aspic? Cold cuts and canned fruit? Maraschino cherries and boiled hot dogs? The Flickr group “Gee, That Food Looks Terrible” aims to catalog some of the truly disgusting food from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. Like this broiled ham and lima bean casserole, which has the pallid hue of a seasick sailor. Thanks, but we’ll pass. After the jump, three more delightfully unpleasant vintage recipe images.
