Bird's Custard Powder
Add milk and sugar and voila! The creamiest, yummiest custard ever. I use it for Irish trifle- layer fresh berries, jams, custard and pound cake sprinkled with sherry (of COURSE there's booze in it. Did you expect otherwise from me?). Bird's is the only "real" custard on earth, in my opinion.... ; )
If you know anyone Irish- really Irish- that you'll be putting on your holiday gift list, consider sending them a full traditional Irish breakfast package from Ireland. All the brands and tastes we love, all in one place....
I know, I know, they're pink and phallic and plump... and ohhhh so delicious. Bangers are an essential part of a traditional Irish breakfast.
