Walk Japan


1 pint (approx 550ml) milk
4 level teaspoons gelatine
2 tablespoons cold water
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
pinch salt
3/4 teaspoon vanilla essence


Heat milk in a saucepan. Mix gelatine with water and stir into milk. Bring to boiling point and remove from heat.

Separate eggs and beat yolks with sugar. Slowly add milk while stirring. Return mixture to saucepan and heat for 1 minute. Remove from heat and add salt and vanilla essence.

Beat egg whites until very stiff and fold in to cream mixture. Pour into a mould or individual ramekins and leave to set. Turn out and serve with fruit. It will have settled into a spongy layer and a jelly layer.

Serves 6



Does a cup of tea taste better with Jersey cow milk?
