Orange Ice

Take 2 quarts of water, 1 quart of orange juice, and 2 pounds of sugar. Melt the sugar in the water, letting it boil for a few moments, and removing the scum, if any rises. Then add the juice, and let it boil up once, again skimming, if necessary. When cold, put into a freezer, and turn until it is partly frozen. Remove the cover, scrape down the sides, and add a meringue made of the white of 1 egg beaten to a stiff froth, with 1 teaspoonful of finely powdered sugar. Work it in as smooth as possible, and then turn until frozen. The meringue keeps it from forming into granules, and makes it more like ice-cream.

Lemon Ice

Take 3 quarts of water, 1 pint of lemon-juice, 2 pounds of sugar.

Make the same as orange ice.

Pineapple Ice

Take 3 quarts of water, 1 1/2 pints of pineapple juice, and 2 pounds of sugar.

Make the same as orange ice.

If desired, the cream of any nuts may be substituted for the water, but it then becomes an ice-cream.
