Heat one quart of milk to boiling point. Dissolve four large tablespoons
of cornstarch in a quarter cup of cold milk. Beat two whole eggs with
one-half cup of sugar until light, and add a tiny pinch of salt. When
the milk begins to boil, add a piece of butter, size of a hickory nut,
then pour it over the well-beaten eggs and sugar, mix well, and put back
on the stove. Stir until it begins to boil, then stir in the dissolved
cornstarch until the custard is very thick. Remove from the fire, flavor
with vanilla or lemon, pour into a mold, and set on ice till very cold
and firm. Serve with cream.

From MRS. GEORGE W. LAMAR, of Georgia, Alternate Lady Manager.
One quart of cream; sweeten and flavor with two wine-glasses of wine
and a half teaspoonful of vanilla. Whip with an egg whip until it
becomes very thick. Put one-third of a box of gelatine (Nelson's
preferred) to soak in one pint of water. When quite soft pour off the
water and dissolve by holding over the fire and stirring carefully;
when tepid pour into the cream. Let the mixture congeal partially and
pour into a mould that has been lined with lady fingers or sponge cake
cut into strips. Put into a cold place and turn out before serving.

Pull an ounce of mild white isinglass into small pieces--rinse them, and

put to them a quart of milk if the weather is hot, and three pints if it

is cold weather. Set it on a few coals, stir it constantly till the

isinglass dissolves, then sweeten it to the taste with double refined

loaf sugar, put in a small stick of cinnamon, a vanilla bean, or blade

of mace. Set it where it will boil five or six minutes, stirring it

constantly. Strain it, and fill the moulds with it--let it remain in

them till cold. The same bean will do to use several times.

milk to prevent its burning. Let it boil till quite soft, stirring it
