A two dish raspberry night

My Mother was a very smart lady when it came to using her culinary skills as a bribe for better behavior of her four kids. In the early 1960’s, we were promised two dishes of Junket every night after dinner (raspberry or banana) if we were good kids during that day. There were degrees of punishment, with penalties ranging from a half dish to both full dishes taken away for being not so good during the day. I remember quite distinctly the satisfaction of having a two dish raspberry night.
