Apple trifle brings the nostalgia forward in most people. I remember all the times my mother was in the kitchen and making a proper sized portion together for the following day, to serve to our guests. I was fascinated by the layers and the jewel-red dollops of red currant jelly. But it is only within the last couple years that I have also begun to appreciate the taste. Perfect for summer evenings with a splash of whipped cream.
