 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           raisins
    7      ounces        semisweet chocolate
    3      tablespoons   butter
    6      tablespoons   sugar
    3      ounces        blanched almonds -- finely chopped
    2                    egg yolks
    7      ounces        petit beurre-type bisuits <sweet plain> -- crushed
    3      tablespoons   mixed candided orange peel and citron
         This is another recipe for chocolate salami.  The recipe
         suggests serving it with whipped cream as a decoration.
         Soak the raisins in warm water to cover until needed.
         Break up the chocolate and place in a saucepan or heatproof
         bowl with the butter.  Place this over another saucepan of
         gently simmering water until melted (it must not touch the
         water).  Add the sugar, almonds, biscuit crumbs, drained
         raisins, and candied peel and mix well.  Remove from heat.
         Stir in the egg yolks and let mixture cool completely.
         Form mixture into a salami shape with your hands and place
         it on a sheet of waxed paper.  Seal the paper around it
         and refrigerate it for several hours.  At serving time,
         remove the waxed paper, slice the salami and arrange
         the slices on a plate.
 NB: For good presentation, don't slice it all.  Cut about a third into
     slices and serve on a long serving dish with the salami and some
     slices already cut on the plate.  Better yet, serve it on a
    cutting board to fool the guests!
