Isinglass Blanc Mange

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.
