A Bowl of Snow (from 1594!)

< Back to Christmas Recipes

This is a very old recipe and I take NO responsibility for how it tastes!

Take a pottle (half a gallon!) of sweet thick Cream, and the white of eyght Egs (8 eggs), and beate them altogether, with a spoone, then put them into your cream with a dishfull of Rosewater, and a dishfull of Sugar withall, then take a sticke and make it clene, and then cut it in the end foursquare, and therewith beat all the aforesaid things together, and ever as it ariseth take it off, and put it in to a Cullender, this doone, take a platter and setae an Apple in the midst of it, stick a thicke bush of Rosemary in the Apple. Then cast your Snow upon the Rosemary and fill your platter therewith, and if you have wafers cast some withall, and so serve them forthe.
