Sweet white sauce flavoured with mint and often coloured very bright green. An accompaniment for School Dinner puddings such as a Chocolate Concrete.


Becky Thorn's 2008 'School Dinner: Recipes and Reminiscences of the Good, the Bad and the Spotted Dick' has;"What a pity today's children are denied the full day-glo experience of fluorescent green mint custard that used to accompany this culinary masterpiece."
