Pre-trifle - Jelly Custard
You will need:-
One packet of red jello [check flavor carefully]
32 fluid ounces of Bird's Custard made up
Make the jello first and leave to set in the fridge for an hour until firm
Meanwhile make up the hot custard and leave to cool with a sheet of greaseproof paper or Saran Wrap / Cling film over the surface so that it doesn't form a skin.
When the jelly is set and the custard is cold, pour the custard evening over the jello and refrigerate for an hour.
Try and eat both substances together with a bit of red and a bit of yellow on the same spoon.
Once you have mastered this technique you can advance to the next stage and add a layer of whipped cream on top - 3 flavors, 3 textures, 3 colors, 3 smells. Up for the challenge?
Only a few wee mouthfuls away from Trifle......or so we hope.
