After the custard is cold cut up three tart oranges and stir in, beat the whites of two eggs (saved from the above) and stir in custard.

An excellent pudding is made of tart apples stewed, and then put in layers with fine cracker or bread crumbs. While the apples are still hot, stir sugar and a little butter in with them. This should be baked for half an hour. A little sweet cream is a great addition, but it is good without any sauce.
Put one-half box of Cooper's gelatine to soak by sprinkling it on top of a quart of sweet milk, in a tin bucket. Let it soak two hours, then set the bucket in a kettle of hot water over the fire. Beat the yolks and whites of four eggs separately, and stir into each four tablespoonfuls of sugar. When the milk and gelatine are scalded, add the yolks and sugar, stirring all the time. As soon as it thickens pour in the whites and sugar, beating all the time. Add one table-spoonful of vanilla. Pour into moulds wet with milk or water and let it harden by placing on ice. Avoid cooking long enough to curdle. Serve with sweetened cream.
