A Fond Memory Returns- DANISH DESSERT Thu, 10/31/13 4:58 PM (permalink)
 One of my favorite 'pudding-pie fillings' from my youth was  Junket's  "DANISH DESSERT" a Raspberry flavored , corn-starch based pudding/sauce/glaze. No one else in my family cared for it plain, but over a bowl of peaches it made a fine 'Peach Melba' dessert.  Two cups of water, the mix and bring to a boil  til it thickens...much like all the Jell-o  mixes. Sometime in the 70's ( I think) the demand dropped and it disappeared from store shelves.... although the strawberry version still can be found now and then.
Recently I found a source for my old favorite--on Amazon's grocery section. I have ordered some and will try it to see if the memories remain positive with the renewal of an old favorite.
As a boy, I would make a box just for me... Licking the spoon and the cooking pan clean before washing them, it would make two servings of 1 cup I would eat while it was still warm/hot and usually a bit runny, the second one would be refrigerated and eaten chilled and quite thick.  My fingers and mouth area would be stained deep red from the to preserve my image I would not do this on a school night, as I took a lot of 'girlie' comments if I showed up the next day at school with lipstick stains all over my face.
Taste test report and maybe a photo will follow in a week or so.
Anyone else remember this delicious kid-pleaser??
