  Categories: Desserts
       Yield: 6 servings
  
   2 1/2 c  Milk
   3 1/2 ts Gelatin
       4    Eggs, separated
     1/2 c  Brown sugar
       1 tb Sweet sherry
       2 tb Marmalade
     1/2 c  Heavy cream
     1/2 c  Toasted slivered almonds
  
   Servings:  6
   
   Place 3 tbsp milk in large bowl, sprinkle gelatin over milk.  Let soak
   while you prepare custard.
   
   Mix egg yolks with sugar in top of double boiler, place over barely
   simmering water, mix in remaining milk.  Stir continuously until mixture
   thickens into a custard.  Remove from heat and immediately pour over
   softened gelatin, stir, so gelatin becomes thoroughly mixed in. Mix in the
   sherry and chill for 20 to 30 minutes.
   
   Beat egg whites until they form soft peaks, fold into custard.  Turn into
   serving dish and chill for several hours.  The custard will separate,
   leaving a foamy top and a jelly bottom.
   
   Place the marmalade in a small saucepan and warm it very gently over low
   heat.  Spread it evenly over the top of the pudding.  Turn the cream into a
   bowl and beat it stiff.  Spread over marmalade, sprinkle with nuts.
   
   The sensual and seductive taste of this dessert should satisfy the
   Taurean’s love of things both sweet and pleasurable, its pale soft topping
   suggesting the foamy waves of the sea from which Venus was born.
