Christmas pudding

If you close your eyes and imagine a Christmas pudding you probably think of warmth, brandy, plump sultanas peeking out from between folds of glistening pudding.  So now take the warmth and the glistening pudding and replace it with gelatinous wobbly jelly… and you have Christmas pudding, Bad Jelly style.

The recipe is that you take a bunch of stuff that probably shouldn’t be cooked, then you cook it, then you mix it with some sherry and some gelatine and leave it to set.  The smell while it is setting is horrible.  It’s so hard to describe except to say it’s the smell of something that shouldn’t be cold, quietly being cold and resenting it.

“Decanting” was so hard and we ended up dropping it from a height on to a breadboard, so the photos below look slightly worse for wear.

Yes, those are bananas

We looked at the bad jelly.  The bad jelly wobbled slightly and dared us to taste it.
