Moss

(Confectionary.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)







Take as much white starch as sugar, and sift it; colour some of the

sugar with turmeric, some with blue powder, some with chocolate, and

some with the juice of spinach; and wet each by itself with a solution

of gum-dragon. Strain and rub it through a hair sieve, and let them dry

before you touch them.

Other Recipes


IRISH MOSS.

Boil half an ounce of carrageen or Irish moss, in a pint and a half
of water or milk till it is reduced to a pint; it is a most excellent
drink for delicate persons or weakly children.

A FINE SOFT DRINK FOR A COUGH.
Add to a quarter of a pint of new milk warmed, a beaten new laid egg,
with a spoonful of capillaire, and the same of rose water.

Moss Jelly

Steep Carragua, or Irish moss, in cold water a few minutes, to extract

the bitter taste--then drain off the water, and to half an ounce of moss

put a quart of fresh water, and a stick of cinnamon. Boil it till it

becomes a thick jelly, then strain it, and season it to the taste with

white wine and white sugar. This is very nourishing, and recommended

highly for consumptive complaints.
