Mould of Fresh Fruit


  • currants
  • raspberries
  • cherries
  • 4 ounces of sugar
  • 2 ounces of almonds blanched and cut fine
  • 5 ounces of arrowroot or potato flour


Take enough fresh, ripe currants and raspberries to make half a cupful of juice of each, and press through a sieve fine enough to retain the seeds; or the fruit may be strained and squeezed through cheese cloth. Take also enough ripe cherries to make a cupful of juice and mix all together. Put a quart of boiling water in a saucepan over the fire with the sugar and almonds. Mix the arrowroot or potato flour with the cold fruit juices, stir it into the boiling water and let it boil about five minutes, turn it into a wet mould, and when cold set on the ice. This should be made the day before it is to be served. Serve with cream.
