Flummery – 3 Ingredient Dessert

I have to confess as I have gotten older I have gotton lazier with my cooking. I look for simple ingredients, less ingredients, frugal coooking, and most of all easy.

This dessert falls right in that catorgory. It is cheap, total cost is $4.56 for all the ingrediants. It can be even cheaper if you buy home brand jelly and evaporated milk when on special.
It is easy to make. Mix the jelly (jello) with the water, leave to cool, whip the evaporated milk,  The milk must be very well chilled.

Add in the jelly. It needs to be like the feel of egg whites. But not set and it must be cool.
Mix the two toghether and then pour into a dish and refrigerate. How easy is that?
See told you I am lazy.
So what is jelly cystals? also known as jello ofr flavorured gelatine. Basically a flavorless food derived from collagen obtained from various animal raw materials. Eg horses hoooves, cow horns and so on.
Here is a Wikipedia link for more info.

The spoon should be able to stand up in it. It is a lovely soft foam and very easy to eat, Ideal for summer or any party. Ok to be honest anytime.

This recipe is in the iconic New Zealand Edmonds cookbook. A brillant book with so many back to basic recipes.
