Selling usually on a Friday and Saturday from her porch in Grouville, she also supplies for any events including office birthdays, weddings, fetes, anywhere really where you would like a taste of Jersey Tradition.
The Jersey wonder recipe is a local tradition handed down through the generations to Collette. Wonder recipes can differ from family to family on the Island and are not quite the same from one side to the other. Tradition has it that housewives only cooked their wonders as the tide went out. If they cooked them on the incoming tide, the fat in which the wonders were cooked would invariably overflow the pot.The closest equivalent to the Jersey wonder would be a doughnut, however, wonders should never be coated in sugar nor filled with jam!
