The Jus-Rol frozen puff pastry sheets I purchased from Tesco for about £1.50. I never purposefully went out to buy these, I just happened to spot them in the frozen section and thought they looked like a good idea for a quick meal. **PACKAGE AND LABELLING** The pastry comes in a simple long, thin cardboard box, mainly green with some pastry and ingredients on the front. On the back is a great simple recipe that you can follow if you are a little unsure of what to do with your new found purchase, which is clearly written out in concise but easy to read format. What I like about the recipe also is that the recipe is for a tomato , cheese ... Read the complete review

Now having to cook for myself at university I have been looking out for simple recipes that I can make. I hate having to keep buying ready meals and the other day whilst watching the tv I noticed a Jus-Rol Pastry advert. It showed a very quick recipe to make what looked like a large rectangular pizza tart. So when I was in Tesco's the other day I bought some Jus-Rol Pastry. I could only find it in the frozen section. PRICE AND PACKAGING The box had 425g in which consisted of small 2 puff pastry sheets, but one sheet was large enough to make the tart as shown on the advert. I bought this box for £1.51 which I thought was quite cheap. Also in the ... Read the complete review

I love Jus Rol Frozen Puff Pastry. Now, I promise you that I mostly cook things from scratch and I do make my own shortcrust pastry which is really not difficult at all. I did once look up a recipe on how to make puff pastry in a fancy French cookbook and was amazed by what I saw. Not only do you have to spend ages and ages kneading in the butter and then letting it rest only to repeat the process, you also have to use obscene quantities of butter which I just can't bring myself to do. No matter that Jus Rol is very high in calories and fat itself, at least it can be out of sight out of mind if I didn't add any butter myself! After all this talk about ... Read the complete review

I like to think of myself as a decent coo- I can whip up a decent pasta sauce or a healthy casserole easily, but one thing I really can't get the hang of is pastry. To make a decent pastry you need to be fast and have nice cold hands - sad to say, I'm pretty slow and have rather hot hands, which means that the butter in pastry melts too fast , making it a rather hit and miss affair . So, I'm not ashamed to say that I cheat a little, and that I tend to buy ready made pastry rather than make my own . And Jus-Rol is the only pre made brand I am aware of - with shortcrust pastry in blue packaging and puff pastry in red . Jus-Rol started in the 1930s ... Read the complete review

I would consider myself a reasonable cook. I like to try new things and experiment, but, the thought of making my own puff pastry always sends me skipping to the next in the cook book. I decided I really wanted to make a chicken and mushroom pie, but really didn't want to risk making the pastry myself and ruining the whole dish. My friend suggested I try JusRol Puff pastry, which you can buy frozen from most super markets. I purchased mine from Tesco and left it in the fridge to defrost until I needed it the following evening. The pastry cost about £1.50. I initally thought that this was quite expensive but when you work out how much time it saves ... Read the complete review
