i liked the name of this dessert so much i decided i had to make it. it is of welsh origin, has the consistency of pudding, though cold, and originally used gelatin from pig bones. today we use corn starch.


1 pint of berries (i used half raspberries, half blueberries)
1/2 cup sugar
grated rind and juice of one lemon
1 1/2 cups water
6 tablespoons cornstarch

stir the cornstarch with the water in a measuring cup to dissolve it and make sure there will not be any lumps. add this mixture in a saucepan to the berries, sugar and lemon. cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it is bubbling and thick. most of the fruit will have dissolved.

spoon into serving bowls and chill.
