Bread Jelly
Puddings and Sweet Deserts

Bread boiled until it can set as a semi-clear jelly. Cooled and flavoured with fruit. Known from 'Food in England' by Dorothy Hartley (Hartley 1954).

Elizabeth Gaskell's 'Cranford' has; "Mrs Forrester made some of the bread-jelly, for which she was so famous, to have ready as a refreshment in the lodgings when he should arrive. A present of this bread-jelly was the highest mark of favour dear Mrs Forrester could confer."
