Jam Tomorrow, from Hogfather by Sir Terry Pratchett!
What a dark concept for such a happy recipe, honestly. Hogfather was, in some ways, far more mature than your run-of-the-mill blood and guts fantasy novel, and it was a satire about Christmas:
BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT, IS THAT THE IDEA?
‘That’s about the size of it, master. A good god line, that. Don’t give 'em too much and tell 'em to be happy with it. Jam tomorrow, see.’
THIS IS WRONG. Death hesitated. I MEAN…IT’S RIGHT TO BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT. BUT YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE SOMETHING TO BE HAPPY ABOUT HAVING. THERE’S NO POINT IN BEING HAPPY ABOUT HAVING NOTHING.
