Some of you know I sadly lost my Mum this February. She’d battled cancer and was in remission but unfortunately her kidneys failed and within hours of her being taken to hospital she died.
In the past few weeks we have been back and forth to her home, sorting out things with lots of trips to charity shops.
The last time we visited there I was sorting through her pantry and found a nearly full bottle of sherry, my Mum’s favourite tipple. I wondered what to do with it and then thought why not bring it home and over Easter make a trifle just like Mum used to make with the addition of her sherry. I have this morning just finished whipping the cream and toasting almonds for the decoration.
We will sit this afternoon and raise our spoons to my Mum and her sherry trifle recipe…
