Eggs, 4,

Sugar, 1/2 cup,

Lemon, 1 (using juice and rind),

White wine, sherry or rum, 1/2 wine-glass.

To the yolks of the eggs add the sugar, wine, and lemon, using both the juice and the rind of the lemon. Place on the fire, and stir briskly with a wooden spoon until it comes to a boil. Then remove from the fire, and when cool mix this with the well-beaten whites of the eggs. This is to be served with cornstarch, rice, or any cold pudding.
