Berried Treasure Pots



Canned Food UK, are working on a programme with James Martin to remind people of the convenience and quality of canned foods.

This is what they should look like!

I always have a selection in my store cupboard, but mainly baked beans, tinned tomatoes and pulses. I never buy canned fruit, but canned fruit in water or in it's own juice can count towards your 5-a-day and they don't contain any artificial preservatives, so it may be worth having a tin or two to hand.

I picked one of their simpler recipes for Cooper to make and we made a step-by-step video for you to watch.

We hope you enjoy it.

Oh and don't laugh too hard when you realise Cooper and I thought we were making Buried Treasure and not Berried Treasure!Oh and we forgot to put the butter in the pan too. Whoops! it was still good as a golden syrup coated muesli.

Berried Treasure
A simple & quick dessert of layered rice pudding, fruit and a crunchy muesli topping.
Ingredients
  • 25g butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 100g muesli
  • 411g tin (approx) apricots, drained and chopped
  • 425g tin (approx) rice pudding
  • 410g tin (approx) strawberries, drained
  • 300g tin (approx) raspberries, drained
Instructions
1. Slowly melt 25g butter with 30ml (2 tablespoon) golden syrup in a pan. Add 100g muesli, mix and set aside to cool. The original recipe called for 1 tbsp of syrup, but we felt it needed more. 2. Divide all the chopped apricots (from a 411g can) evenly between 4 glasses or sundae glass. Cover each apricot layer with a tablespoon of rice pudding from a 425g can. 3. Add a layer of drained strawberries (from a 410g can) followed by a tablespoon of rice pudding. Then add 1 x 300g can drained raspberries, followed by a layer of rice pudding. 4. Divide the muesli topping evenly between the four glasses. Serve immediately.

    1. Oh, there's the boy! I was so sorry we missed seeing him - although I have a feeling he would have clammed up and hidden under the table for awhile. He looks as if he does get shy periodically. I love how he wants to add his own ideas, as he goes along. Why not just put ONE strawberry per bowl?? Funny boy. He's really so adorable, and I love to listen to him roll his wee r's. ☺

      1. Cooper, no he would have been in the middle of the conversation after speaking to you for a couple of minutes Tanita. He is more shy of children he doesn't know than adults.

      1. Thanks Nayna. Ohhhhh! Should have put one of the aprons you made on him. Don't know why he doesn't have one on, must have forgot.

    5. Ahahaha! He's so cute! I love how utterly amazed he was at the strawberry juice pouring in, and he was obviously thinking,"What was THAT?"

      Also nice to hear some fellow Scottish accents on a blog, so often they're all American. You sound exactly like my cousin (and probably a lot like me too) when you speak, its quite strange!

      1. I know what you mean and I grew up in Dunfermline, where are accents are close to those in Edinburgh. Funnily enough I can't hear an accent in my voice.

    6. To look at him, you'd think golden syrup wouldn't melt.......

    8. Brilliant as always..............have watched this video countless numbers of times, have posted it on my F/book too.............I'm not in the slightest bit biased of course..................even though I'm Cooper's baa Anne. Terrific Jacque, I loved where Cooper tries to pour the strawberries in and you laugh....I really thought they were all going to splatter in the bowl and onto the table. Loved it all!! xx
