Jordan Cereal Review

Jordans Cereal is something I really enjoy. So when I got a chance to review the Country crisp Strawberries, I jumped at it. Not only that but this year for the first time Jordans cereal are unveiling its very first garden
 at RHS Hapmpton Court Flower show.  The Jordan Wildlife Garden has been created by award winning garden designer, Selina Botham, to reflect a long - term commitment from Jordans to the British countryside.
As part of the countryside celebrations, Jordans has enlisted the taste expertise of Great British Bake Off winner, Edd Kimber, to create a series of foraged food recipes inspired bu the Jordan Wildlife Garden. 
So I decided to make this one as it was the cereal that I had.

Edd Kimber's Alpine Strawberry Fool

Prep time 10 mins
Cooking time: 25 mins
Serves : 6

250ml whole milk
1 tsp vanilla bean paste
1 large egg
2 large egg yolks
199g caster sugar
15g  cornflower

Strawberry Compote
400g alpine strawberries, hulled and diced
85g caster sugar

To Finish
300ml double cream
crystallised rose petals (optional)
70g Jordans Country Crisp Cereal

1. for the custard, place the milk and vanilla bean into a med saucepan and bring to the boil. Whilst coming to temperature, place the egg and yolk into a large bowl along with the caster sugar and cornflour, whisking together until smooth. Pour the hot milk onto the egg, whisking constantly. Pour this custard back into the pan and over med heat, stir constantly until the custard has thickened ( it should have the texture of custard made with powder, thicker than a creme anglaise but still pourable). Pour back into the bowl and press a sheet of cling film onto the surface of the custard and refrigerate until cold.

2. For the strawberry compote, place the strawberries and sugar into a med saucepan and cook over med heat until the fruit has released lots of juice. Continue to cook until the juice has reduced to a syrup and the strawberries have just started to break down. Pour into a small bowl and chill.

3. To assemble the fools , divide half of the compote between the glasses and top with the custard.Sprinkle the Jordens Country Crisp Strawberries onto the custard and then set the glasses aside for the moment. In a large bowl whisk the cream until it holds soft peaks. add most of the remaining compote ( reserving a little to decorate) and gently fold together leaving it partially swirled in. Spoon the cream mix into the glasses

4. To finish the fool, spoon the remaining compote on top of the cream and sprinkle a little extra Jordans Country Crisp Strawberries.

 . It was easy to make and It was so yummy I will be making it again.
