FRUIT RECIPE FOR HOT WEATHER.
Remove the rind of two lemons, and cut the lemons in small pieces; add
two cups of sugar, one pint of boiling water, three tablespoons of
corn starch; mix with a little milk; put them all together, and boil
slowly for five minutes. Cut into small bits four oranges; put in a
deep dish, ready for the table, and sprinkle over them a little fine
sugar; pour the lemon compound over them. When cold, whip whites of
two eggs; add a very little sugar. Flavor with lemon extract. Put in
ice box to cool.
