Delicious Christmas flummery – a summer treat!

I remember eating fruit flummery as a child – it was sooo good! Smooth and tasty and cold, my cousins, brother and I ate all we could get our hands on!

It was at all our family occasions in summer, although I don’t actually remember it on Christmas Day…

Most of the time, we ate home-made plum flummery – and I’m going to have to search for that recipe, too. But here is an easier version for the whole family (again, inspired by recipes that are good for toddlers and babies as requested by Vida 🙂 )

Do you have a special dessert memory from your childhood, too?

Red & green Flummery

250 ml (1 cup) unsweetened evaporated milk
1 packet (85 g) red jelly crystals
1 cup of boiling water
2 kiwi fruit
bunch green grapes

Chill the milk for at least an hour.

Mix jelly and water in a bowl then put into fridge until it is about half set.

Pour milk in to a large bowl and whip until light and fluffy.

Keep beating the milk and slowly pour in the half-set jelly until all is blended.

Put into fridge to set.

Slice kiwi fruit and grapes and arrange on top of the set flummery to serve.

Lots of red cherries on top instead of the kiwi and grapes is delicious, too, if you are happy with a red dessert instead of red and green!

    That sounds so yummy, and just right for a hot day.

    My favourite desert as a kid was simply baked apples with sultanas, served with some creamy ice-cream!

      You never had flummery before, Lydia?

      My Mum used to make baked apples, too – and my husband does it now occasionally – but I’m not a big fan I must admit. A fresh crispy apple apeals more to me.
