Frozen Fruits

Frozen fruits are mixed and frozen the same as water-ice, mashing or cutting the fruits, and using them without straining.

If canned fruits are used, only half the quantity of sugar given in the recipes for fresh fruits will be required.

Frozen Apricots

1 quart-can of apricots

2 tablespoonfuls of gelatine

1 cup of sugar 1 pint of cream

Drain the apricots, cut them up with a silver spoon, and remove the stones. Add the sugar to the syrup, and sufficient water to make one and a half pints. Cover the gelatine with cold water and soak a half-hour. Boil the water, sugar and syrup together for five minutes; skim carefully, add the gelatine, stir until dissolved, add the apricots and stand aside to cool. When cold, pour into the freezer, and freeze. When frozen, add the cream, whipped, remove the dasher, cover the tub, and stand away two hours to ripen.
