a few years ago at a bbq there was a jelly dish, orange jelly made with mint sauce and it had pineapple and red onion in it, as weird as it sounds it was actually quite nice.

Last Year I made a beetroot jelly that was yummy but it was a hot day and it started to melt as we had a BBQ

put a tin of evaporated milk into the freezer. MIx jelly with 1 cup of boiling water and leave till cold and has the consistency of egg white. Mix with evaporated milk and beat well until doubled in size. Pour into serving bowls and leave in fridge till set.

(My grandmother used to make this a lot with lime jelly and served in the blue bowls which she gave to me)

Do you freeze the evaporated milk or does it just need to be reaally cold Bunny!

It just has to be cold!We used to get served "Dragons Blood" for dessert sometimes - raspberry jelly mixed in to the evaporated milk - yummy!

reminds me my teens would call yo yo biscuits hand grenades, so we still do

Ha haI'm sure we've all invented names to make food more enticing. My adult kids remind me of something I called "Hop-Along Cassidy" and I couldn't now recall its original name.

I beat 1/2 a 300ml bottle of cream. Beat in an almost set strawberry jelly and mashed strawberries. Leave to set in fridge.

Orange boats.make up a bowl of orange jelly, using some juice from fresh oranges in it too.Makea firm mix.

Cut oranges in half.scoop out the flesh (use the juice from these in the jelly)get them sitting firmly on a plate or board.Fill the halves with orange to the top.When set, cut in half again (quarters).make a sail with a triangle of paper and a love them.did them often for my kids birthday parties.
