2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup lime juice
1/2 cup lemon juice
Grated rind of 2 lemons and 2 limes
Pinch of salt
2 tablespoons unflavored gelatine
1/2 cup rum
3 cups whipping cream
Green food coloring
Beat egg yolks. Add 1 cup sugar. Add lime and lemon juices, rinds, and salt. Cook in double boiler over hot water until thick.
Soak gelatine in rum. Stir into hot custard. Cool.
Beat the 10 egg whites until stiff. Add the other cup of sugar. Gradually fold whites into COOL custard.
Whip 2 cups of the cream, and fold into custard mixture. Add enough green food coloring to color a delicate green. Pour into a 6-cup soufflé dish, using a collar if necessary. Refrigerate.
To serve, remove collar from soufflé dish.
Whip the remaining cup of cream. Put on top of soufflé. Decorate top with pistachio nuts and lime curls. Candied violets and lime twists served on the top as garnishes are also very pretty.
Serve from the dish.
