    BeachGirl's Note:

    It may sound unusual, but it's actually a delicious light dessert - and so easy. Served in stemmed glasses, it makes a lovely presentation. Mother always served this after Christmas dinner. Pink champagne or cold duck can be substituted for the port.

      Delicious, unusual dessert. I did use the port wine and next time will try using some champagne. The directions were very accurate and clear - my custard especially turned out so rich & creamy that it was hard to believe that it was made using skim milk. The gelatin has a strong but nice flavor and the custard provides a nice balance of textures and flavors. Thanks!
