Mrs. Beeton , the original domestic goddess popularized jelly desserts in her best selling book Mrs. Beetons Book of Household Management . Yes, she is the one to blame, but still, when in moderation and fortified with alcohol, jellied desserts are light and refreshing. Chartreuse is an after dinner liqueur which dates back to the 17th century, a creation by 3 monks who each had one part, but not the entire recipe. It is available in green and yellow. While the green provides a nice color contrast to the peaches, it has more of a vegetable or herbal flavour, the yellow more honey. It is one of the handful of liquors that continues to age and improve in the bottle.
