1 cupful maple syrup
4 egg yolks
1 pint heavy cream
1 tablespoonful granulated gelatine soaked in 1/3 cupful cold water
Scald the syrup and pour slowly into the beaten egg yolks, whipping constantly. Return to a double boiler and cook until the mixture will coat the spoon like custard; then add the gelatine. Put in a cool place, and, when the mixture begins to congeal, fold in the cream, and let stand till stiff in a mould prepared as directed.

Boil the sugar and water for five minutes. Then add the gelatine and turn onto the egg whites, beaten stiff, whipping constantly until cold. Then beat the cream stiff, gradually adding the orange and lemon and finally the ginger. Fold in the gelatine mixture, and pour the Bavarian into a prepared mould to stiffen. Serve with whipped cream, flavored with ginger syrup, and garnish with candied cherries and sliced preserved ginger.
