Pain of Strawberries


  • 1 quart ripe strawberries
  • 2 ounces gelatine
  • 3/4 pound sugar
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • cochineal


Put the strawberries into a colander, rinse off with cold water and press them through a sieve; soak the gelatine in 1/2 pint cold water for 15 minutes, add 1/2 pint boiling water and stir over the fire till gelatine is dissolved; set aside to cool; then dissolve the sugar in 1 pint cold water, put it over the fire with the lemon juice and boil 5 minutes; when cold add it with the gelatine to the strawberries; also add the white wine and a little cochineal; put the pain on ice till it begins to thicken; then fill it into a form with a tube in the center, cover and place for 2 or 3 hours on ice. Pains of raspberries or currants are made the same way, using no lemon.
