Milk Jelly

Jelly Mould, Milk, to make
Woman's Own Book of the Home, 1932

1 pint new milk
1 oz sugar
1/2 oz gelatine
1 tablespoonful brandy

Place the milk, sugar and gelatine in a white-lined saucepan, stir over the fire until the sugar and gelatine are dissolved, taking care the milk does not boil. When cool add the brandy, pour into a wetted mould and turn out when set. Stewed fruit or jam may be served with it.

The Woman's Own Book of the Home is a wonderful work, with recipes for everything from how to wash lace to how to address letters to royalty.
