Vintage Recipe Thursday -- 7th Weekly Edition Strawberry Parfait Recipe

Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers or your own original vintage family recipes. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?

It's strawberry season and we're having another heat wave where I live so as I was looking through my Searchlight Recipe Book, the Strawberry Parfait just jumped out to be picked for this week's Vintage Recipe Thursday. You'll notice just how old this recipe is when you'll read how they are freezing it!

Strawberry Parfait
8 servings
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups crushed strawberries
1 1/2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup water
2 Egg Whites
few grains of salt

Combine sugar, water, and salt. Boil to soft ball stage (238F.). Pour slowly, beating constantly, over stiffly beaten egg whites. Continue beating until cold. Fold in berries. Carefully fold in stiffly whipped cream. Serve with sweetened cream. Garnish with whole berries. Fill mold. Pack in ice and salt. Let stand 4 hours.

YOU are next!
