Gelatin, 1/2 box, Sugar, 1 cup, Strawberry-juice, 2 cups, Eggs, 4, Cream, 1/2 pint, Vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon.
Soak the gelatin in a half-cup of cold water for half an hour. Then pour on to it 1 cup of boiling water, add the sugar, and stir till it is dissolved. Add 2 cups of strawberry-juice and strain all into a bowl.
Put the bowl into a pan of cold water, and let the mixture become thick, stirring it now and then as it cools.
Then beat it to a stiff froth with a whisk; add the beaten whites of the eggs, and beat all together till smooth. Put it into small molds, or into one large mold, and chill.
Serve with a cold liquid sauce, flavored lightly with vanilla, or a thin custard made with the yolks of the eggs.
Pineapple, raspberry, and blackberry sponge may be prepared in the same way.
