Hi, my friends told me they used to have milk jelly as children and it sounded lovely. Just tried to make it and it curdled! What I did: Make up 1/2 pint of jelly with boiling water as per instructions, then added half pint of milk instead of water. It Curdled! Hoe do I make it not curdle? Should it curdle? If it does curdle can you still eat it? Thanks
My mum used to make it to try to get milk into me (I didn't like it). Don't remember hers curdling though. Perhaps she used to cool it before adding the milk. It ought to be edible - it won't make you ill.
I have some vague notion that she might have made it with evaporated milk, now my brain cells start reaching back to that dusty corner...that might be the trick.
