1/2 box Cox's gelatine. 1 cupful cold water.
1 cupful boiling water.
1 pint Sicily Madeira wine.
Soak and dissolve the gelatine. Have ready in a porcelain sauce-pan the other ingredients, the seeds being re moved from the lemon. Pour the gelatine upon them, and set it on the fire. Do not let it boil, but when it begins to bubble slightly on the edges, take it off, and strain. Pour into a deep dish, with a flat square bottom, if possible. When cold and firm, cut into large squares or blocks, and pile in a glass dish.
These directions, if carefully and exactly followed, will make a handsome, clear jelly, very delicate and well-flavored.
