pantry staples: junket danish dessert

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.
