2 squares (2 ozs.) chocolate 4 tablespoons (2 ozs.) sugar or honey
2 cups (1 pt.) hot water
4 tablespoons (1 oz.) cornstarch
Melt chocolate with one half cup of the hot water, then add sugar or honey and remainder of hot water. Moisten cornstarch with sufficient milk to make it thickness of thin cream, add this to chocolate, and stir till sauce boils and thickens.
Another Method. Into upper pan of a double boiler put one fourth cup sugar or honey, one egg yolk, one cup milk, pinch of salt, one teaspoon butter, one half teaspoon vanilla extract, and two squares of chocolate or three tablespoons cocoa. Cook over hot water, stirring constantly until spoon is coated. Serve hot or cold.
4 cups (1 qt.) cranberries
1/2 teacup (1/4 gill) water
2 cups (1 lb.) sugar
Pick over and wash berries. To these add water and cook until broken to pieces, stirring often to prevent scorching. When berries are done add sugar, stir until it is dissolved, take from fire immediately, and rub through strainer into wet chilled mold. Put into a cool place until serving time.
Another Method. Put one pint sugar and one cup water into a saucepan and allow it to boil five minutes, remove from fire and stand five minutes. Wash one quart cranberries, add them, and boil five minutes with lid on pan; remove from fire and stand five minutes, keeping lid on pan.
