I have made this so may times now! My family ask me to make it for every gathering we have. It takes a little time fo rthe jelly to set but can easily be made the day ahead. I would highly recommend this recipe. Nice with cold ham but we have also had it with lamb and pork. Not to mention having it as a dessert!
