I am so glad that I have rediscovered Junket!

It had been a long while since I had Junket and I had forgotten what a lovely, easy and quick dessert it is. I made it with maple syrup and it was a big hit.

I work as a personal chef and I look forward to making various flavors of Junket for my clients as well as using it to make a variety of cheeses. Also, I just started making ice cream fairly recently and will be trying Junket ice cream soon. Your company makes an excellent, easy to use product and I am so glad that I have rediscovered it!

Warm regards,

My all-time favorite dessert as a child

My all-time favorite dessert as a child was a banana pudding (or ice cream) that my great-grandmother made and put in metal ice trays to freeze. It had bananas mixed in it. I have looked for something similar for years but haven’t been able to find it. I think the Junket was banana flavored, but I’m not sure. This would have been about 1950, and my grandmother died a few years later. I would love to be able to make it now!

The kids loved them

I used to put vanilla junket into wine glasses and use food coloring to make them different colors. The kids loved them (broke a lot of glasses – from 5 & 10).

Our mothers would custard up a storm

Hi there, My husband and myself, were talking about Junket Custard. Our mothers would custard up a storm. I’m from a family of seven children. It was good desert. A penny went further in those days and we all had full bellies. My husband Norm also could remember their full bellies. We were talking about it tonight wondering if you still had your product? Computers are wonderful things!!!! I would like if we could find out if there is a retailer for your product in Canada?

My brother and I have such wonderful childhood memories

My brother and I have such wonderful childhood memories. I remember our mother making your wonderful Junket in these great green glass goblets she got in a box of laundry detergent back in 1955. We each have one of those glasses in our homes, displayed with pride and great memories of Junket! When it arrived, I got out the old glass and made a batch of strawberry Junket. The very first mouthful brought back a wave of great memories, when our parents were young and times were great! Thank you for still making this great product. You have made my day.

“Junket Rennet custard, the growing up dessert!”

I remember Junket because it was my sister’s favorite dessert – Raspberry! Sometimes she would actually drink it before it was done. I also remember a jingle from the 50s – “Junket Rennet custard, the growing up dessert!”

Thank you for everything

When I was 9 years old, 62 years ago, my family moved to Levittown,N.Y. We moved into a cape cod rental unit. The kitchen was on the front right side of the house with a door on the side going into the kitchen. I remember after playing outside in the yard, going into the kitchen through that side door, my Mother would let me hang around long enough to smell and sample what she was making for dinner and as always taste the banana Junket she had made for dessert. Once served, the family quickly made it our favorite dessert and YES, MOM put sliced bananas in it. Most of all, I I remember the wonderful texture of that final step in the meal sometimes difficult to keep on the spoon but, wonderful when you finally made It to your mouth without a mishap, searching through the Junket to get to the banana slices (fun for a 9 year old boy) now finished our dessert. I am now 72 and these memories are as fresh in my mind as if they were only hours old. FYI we later bought a ranch hone on Prentice road and MOM continued to make us JUNKET. It is available in IOWA so I’ll continue to be a customer for as many years as GOD allows. Thank you for everything.

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.

I would eat all of it!

As a kid growing up in West Orange, New Jersey, I was a real Junket girl. When I was old enough, I’d make it for myself the minute I got home from school. My favorites were Raspberry and Vanilla (in that order). I usually found myself unable to wait for the Junket to set, so I would drink the first bowl straight away. As I was a growing girl, I couldn’t get enough. Once the remaining custard was set, I would eat all of it! When I had plans to visit my grandmother in upstate NY, I would remind her to stock her cupboards with Junket beforehand!!

Our favorite dessert: Junket!

As a child growing up in Little Falls NJ in the 40s and early 50s, my mother would make for my sister and me our favorite dessert: Junket! She made it even better by putting a little piece of cardboard on the top; the cardboard had a happy pumpkin-like face cut out; and she sprinkled nutmeg through the openings so that when the cardboard was removed, the happy face remained! That was a delicious dessert and is a very happy memory of mine!
Thank you!
