Peach Cream

According to Mrs Beeton. Makes a change from her 101 ways with boiled cabbage...

1/2 pint of peach puree
1/2 pint of whipped cream
1 oz castor sugar
1 gill of peach syrup
gelatine

Pass sufficient peaches through a hair sieve to make the required amount of puree. Dissolve the gelatine in the syrup, add the sugar and the puree, stir in the stiffly whipped cream. Turn into a mould and put it in the fridge to set.

  1. Isn't it rather odd that Mrs B doesn't tell us where the syrup comes from, nor how to make it?
