DO YOU MAKE the most of custard powder? If not, you should begin to
do so at once. For, given custard powder, "What'll we have for a sweet?"
is no longer a problem.
When a cold sweet is wanted, you can make custard powder into a sauce
and serve it with Foster Clark's Canned Gooscberries, Plums, Raspberries,
or Strawberries, or with steamed or stewed fruit. You can make it into a
fruit fool or trifle. When the weather is hot, you can wave a wand, and
behold-it's turned into ice-cream! When the weather is cold, you can
transform it into baked milk puddings or into sauce for steamed puddings.
You can also make it into cake fillings, mayonnaise, and salad cream, and
if you mix it with the flour you use for making biscuits) buns, and other
teabread, you'll want to try the experiment again.
There's no end to the possibilities of custard powder. If your children
"don't like" milk, you can give them the milk they must have in the
form of custard. If you can't afford to use cream in a cold shape, you
can substitute thin custard. If you want a more elaborate sweet,you
can wed it to one of Foster Clark's Table Jellies.
Let me introduce you to Foster Clark's Cream Custard Powder, and
also to their Table Jellies. Let us drink to their healt.h in a glass of
real-lemon lemonade called Eiffel Tower.
