1 pint of cream
1 pint of milk
4 eggs
4 tart apples
1 pint of water
1 glassful of orange blossoms water
1 wineglassful of curaçao
1 pound of sugar
Juice of one lemon
Peel, core and quarter the apples; put them in a saucepan with the grated
yellow rind of the lemon, half the sugar and all the water; boil until
tender, and add the juice of the lemon; rub the apples through a sieve.
n cold, freeze. Whip the cream. Beat the eggs and the remaining sugar
and add them to the milk, hot; stir until the mixture thickens, take from
the fire, and, when cold, add the orange blossoms water and the Curaçao;
freeze in another freezer. Divide the whipped cream, and stir one-half into
the first and one-half into the other mixture. Line a melon mold with the
custard mixture, fill the centre space with the frozen apples, and cover
over another layer of the custard; put over a sheet of letter paper and
put on the lid. Bind the seam with a strip of muslin dipped in paraffin or
suet, and pack the mold in salt and ice; freeze for at least two hours.
Serve plain, or it may be garnished with whipped cream.
This will serve twelve persons.
