Required: Half a pound of strawberries. A quarter of a pound of castor sugar. Three eggs. Cochineal.

Stalk the strawberries, and beat the fruit and sugar well together. Carefully separate the yolks and whites of the eggs. Put the whites with the mashed strawberries, and with an egg-whisk whip the mixture lightly for about twenty minutes. A few drops of cochineal may be added to improve the colour.

Heap the mixture in a glass dish, and serve with it ice wafers or sponge fingers. Cost, 8d.
