Cold Orange Soup
1 cup citrus juice (made as below)
Rind of 1 orange
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg, separated
Almonds, finely chopped
Using a proportion of 3 oranges to 1 lemon, squeeze oranges and lemon to make 1 cup juice. Save the rind of 1 orange.
To the juice, add sugar and butter, and place in the top of a double boiler.
Beat the egg yolk with the other two whole eggs, and add to the juice. Turn heat high and stir constantly until egg-juice mixture is creamy. Put into a large bowl.
Firmly beat remaining egg white, then gently add it to the soup mixture in the bowl. Place in refrigerator and chill well.
Shred the rind of the remaining orange and blanch it for 2 minutes in boiling water; drain.
Toast almonds briefly in butter on top of the stove in an iron skillet.
Serve soup, sprinkling the orange rind and almonds on top of each dish.
