I love simple puddings, and jelly with ice cream is one of my favourites. This recipe is dedicated to my late father Harlan. He loved jelly with ice cream. Sunday afternoons during the summer after he had his afternoon nap he would make jelly from a packet, add sliced bananas, place it in the fridge to set whilst watering the garden. On his return the jelly would have set, he would help himself to a large portion of wobbly jelly and ice cream. The enjoyment as he cleaned it all up is a picture imprinted in my memory for life.
I tried having a bit of fun with this recipe along the way. Ideally I make my own fruit jelly, and as we are in the middle of the strawberry season it’s best to use fresh over-ripe strawberries. Do not let anything go to waste and use the cooked strawberries
