Queensland’s own Eve, Mourne and Dawn Kransky hopped in their 1958 Morris Major, and made the trek from their family home in Esk to QPAC for this chat.
Wielding instruments as varied as the musical saw, tuba, reed keyboard, toilet brush and guitar, The Kransky Sisters have an off-beat take on popular songs (heard on the wireless).
While the Kransky Christmas celebrations have long been shrouded in secrecy, we've finally got the scoop on their family recipes, Christmas wish lists, and why you should never dry your grapes on the Hills Hoist.
Kransky Christmas Trifle
1 packet crushed Milk Arrowroot biscuits
1/2 cup condensed milk
1 cup Advocaat or egg nog
1 tin pineapple chunks
2 bananas, crushed
1 tin mango slices
1 slice stale bread cut with biscuit cutter into star shapes
Making this tasty trifle:
Crush biscuits with rolling pin. To prevent biscuit pieces dropping onto floor while crushing, scoop into a Kransky tea towel and bash.
Mix in the condensed milk and press the biscuit mix into a large bowl.
Pour over the Advocaat
Add the pineapple, mango slices and banana
Place stale bread stars on top and sprinkle with cochineal to decorate
Whole macadamia nuts
Do not eat Frangipani garnish and discard parts of trifle around the stems. HIGHLY TOXIC. If swallowed see your doctor immediately. If doctor closed on Christmas Day, ingest two pints of full cream milk with the left over stale bread and turn body upside down for one hour.
