Nice to find this old childhood recipe. It’s too easy these days to buy in mousse etc at the supermarket. But we should revert to do more home cooking. So lovely and our little grandson loves it. Can’t get enough and there’s loads of jelly flavours to be done.

I used to make a lovely light lemon mousse by making up a packet lemon jelly with a little less water (making the total around 3/4 pint), sometimes adding in some lemon juice for a more genuine lemon flavour. When that was cool I would whisk a small can of evaporated milk until it was light and bubbly then carefully fold the jelly into the whipped evaporated milk (folding is using a metal spoon to gently turn the mixture over, to avoid knocking out the bubbles, as you add the jelly in slowly). I think this would avoid the problem of separation.
