Apple Island

From the Young Housekeeper’s Friend, another sweet “receipt” which Mrs. Cornelius calls Apple Island.

Stew apple enough to make a quart, strain it through a sieve, sweeten it with fine white sugar, and flavor it with lemon or rose.

Beat the whites of six eggs to a hard froth, and stir into the apple slowly; but do not do this till just before it is to be served.

The apples should be stewed with as little water as possible.

Put it into a glass dish. Serve with a nice boiled custard, made of the yolks of the eggs, to serve with it.
