     1/2 t  Powdered Ginger
     1/2 t  Powdered Cinnamon
     1/2 c  Almonds; grated**
       2 t  Rosewater
       5 ea Black figs or small figs
       2 t  Sugar
   1 1/2 t  Salt
     1/8 lb Butter
       1 T  Parsley; chopped
       1 ea Egg White
  
   * For a 2 crust pie ** Ground, or chopped almonds Wrap the salmon in a
   piece of cheesecloth, tie securely with string and cook gently for about 3O
   minutes in a court bouillon made of water, white wine, salt, onion,
   peppercorns and carrot. Remove from the bouillon, unwrap, and remove all
   skin, bones  and the black part of the flesh. When cool enough to handle,
   flake it with your fingers to be sure you feel and extract all the bones.
    Peel  the  figs  and  add  to  them the  washed  and stemmed grapes.
    Crush the fruits together, using a wooden spoon, and season them with the
   marjoram, cinnamon, ginger, sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt.
    Grate or grind the blanched almonds, moisten them with the rosewater and
   add to the fruit.
    Now stir in the flaked salmon, chopped parsley and 4 tablespoons melted
   butter.
    Beat the egg white with a fork until frothy, then stir it into the whole
   mixture. Line a 9-inch pie dish with pastry and fill it with the salmon
   mixture. Cover with more pastry. Trim, roll under and crimp the edges. Make
   5 or 6  generous slits in the top crust and place in a 350 ^ F. oven. Bake
   for about 20 minutes, turn the regulator to 400^ F. and continue baking
   until it looks done, or for about 45 minutes in all. Serve at once with
   white wine. Source: Pepperidge Farm Cookbook
