Boiled Icing

  • 1 1/4 lb loaf sugar
  • 4 ounces water
  • 3 egg whites, beaten stiff
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Oil of lemon
Dissolve the sugar in water and boil to a thick syrup. Strain through a thin muslin and, while hot, stir the beaten egg whites into it. Beat in the strained lemon juice. Season with a little oil of lemon.

If the icing is too thin, add a moderate amount of sugar; if too stiff, add a moderate amount of more egg white.
