This product is not easy to find, at least where I am from. So when I see it available at our local Sunset grocery store I pretty much clear the shelf. I send it to my sister who also remembers the delicious taste. For me this is a childhood memory, my mom is Danish and more times than I can remember we made “Junket” not Jello. The difference is hard to explain but it is less jelled and more creamy. I can best describe it as a pudding Jello. I know it sounds strange but if you have a chance try it! When my kids had a stomach ache or flu we made Junket. When I am feeling like a cool sweet but not too crazy sweet treat… I make Junket. You can serve it with fruit or my favorite way to eat it is with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.
For those of you who are over 40… take a look at the packaging. This product has not changed its look since my earliest memories and that’s the 60’s. It now has a retro feel and I love it. Such a treat… really another pantry staple.
