Recipe by JustJanS

My mother made this every summer, around Christmas time. It actually makes quite a lot, and is quite rich, so my serving size is a bit of a guess. We had it with salads on really hot days, then in sandwiches to finish it off. I remember being so excited when it was first made, then happy to see the end of it until next year;-)
