This is a dish which for me harks back to my childhood. My brothers and I would delight in the times that Mum would surreptitiously turn to the fridge after the dinner plates had been cleared, gingerly removing from it 5 dainty glass serving dishes all filled with lemon sago. Dessert was a rare treat in our household so occasions like this were few and far between. With its gooey texture and wee jelly-like sago balls we would affectionately refer to this dessert as frog’s eggs and thus eating it was always twice as fun!
What I love about lemon sago is that is a light, unfussy, fresh dessert and even as an adult I still find myself referring to it as frog’s eggs and delight in eating it just as much as I did when we would eat all those years ago.
