How to make Jam Drops
Hi guys so today I will be sharing a recipe from a cooking camp I did at East Cork Cooking School.
And of course credit to Claire my teacher at the camp who created this recipe. She has her own blog on Facebook @ East Cork Cookery School so check it out.

In the Jam drop (in the picture) below I used my own homemade custard powder. The recipe for this I will be sharing later this week.
