Strawberry Cream and Lemon Water Ice

Wipe the lemons with a wet cloth. Rub off all the yellow part, or "zest," as it is called, on to the lumps of sugar. Put water and sugar into a saucepan, and boil without a lid for about ten minutes, or until the syrup forms a thin thread between the finger and thumb. When the syrup is cold, add the strained lemon-juice. Pour this mixture into the freezing-pot, cover and half freeze it in the usual way, as .directed in " How to Freeze the Mixture." Then add the stiffly beaten whites of eggs and beat them lightly but thoroughly in. Continue the freezing, and leave in the ice until needed.

Cost, about is.
