At Tropical Sun, we live by the motto: ‘Variety is the spice of life’. Our journey started in 1996 when we began importing a few specialist ingredients and daily essentials for the UK’s thriving ethnic communities.
As word spread, we began receiving requests for specific items from homelands far-afield: Spices, oils, drinks and snacks that helped people stay connected to their cultures. We loved that the food helped to bring people together.
The ultimate comfort food, custard is popular the world over – and is not only used in desserts, but also in many main meals. In Africa, it is often served alongside moin moin or bean cake, and in many Western countries, can be found in trifle or drizzled over a piping hot apple pie. To prepare custard, mix 35g (approx. 2 tbsps) of custard powder and 500ml (approx. 2.5 cups) of cold milk in a mixing bowl. Add in 50g (approx. 3 tbsps) of sugar, mix together and bring to the boil while stirring well until you get a smooth and creamy consistency. Enjoy!
