Removed the frozen bowl from the freezer and put the white frozen mixture into the centre leaving a small well in the centre into which the Raspberry mixture went. Froze the whole lot again and pulled out of the freezer a couple of hours later and this is what it looked like.
You are supposed to use warm water on the sides of the bowl to release the pudding from the bowl but this was not quite as easy as the recipe leads you to believe. However we both tasted some and it was o.k. Not sure if I would do this again though. The final result looked like a watermelon.
Another hour or so and I thought I might have problems. The recipe requires a 1.2 litre pudding bowl. Looked in my cupboards and managed to find one, just the right size.
Smoothed the green iced mixture over the sides of the pudding bowl and refreeze again.
Another hour or so in the freezer and again you need to break up the ice crystals so it resembles a slushy paste. One more time in the freezer and it should be a paste consistency ready for spreading…
Its been in the freezer for an hour now. Pulled out the two containers and they were indeed part frozen, so I just used a fork to break up the large ice crystals turning the mixture into a kind of slush and then popped back in the freezer for another hour to repeat the process.
This recipe looked interesting but not sure what it’s
going to taste like?
I froze three bananas overnight in the freezer, cut them up this morning and blended with 450g greek style yoghurt and 400g custard.
I was using a small blender so had to do it in two batches as the ingredients wouldn’t all fit into one go. Now I take a third of the mixture and add green food colouring.
Then both mixtures go into small containers for freezing for about an hour again.
Got to wait for an hour now…
Don’t panic. I recalled these words of advice from the greatest books ever written, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy….
Earlier in the week, BBC news announced marmite was amongst products to be taken off the shelves in Tesco stores in a dispute between them and their supplier Unilever.. I normally shop in Asda as it’s cheaper anyway. Damn Brexit – could I still withdraw my yes vote, was it too late. Maybe they should have discussed Brexit and it’s impact on marmite sales, I might have said NO.
The internet was awash with stories of panic buying of marmite. I work long hours. Would I find time to stock up before stocks ran out in other stores.
I’ m down to my last jar, one packet of crisps and 6 packets of cheese. Can I ration myself. Depressed at all this, I eat my last bag of crisps and contemplate a life without marmite. I’m overweight, having a mid life crisis, various ailments, i’ m a teacher And I’m broke. All this I can cope with but not without marmite to comfort me.
The news has just announced Unilever has made up again in consideration of its customers (profit margin more like). Tesco are stocking marmite and now Asda emails me with money off vouchers on marmite. It’s all ok again. I’ve cancelled my visit to the physiatrist.
