   If using homemade beef broth, be sure that you clarify
   the broth before preparing this recipe.
   
   In saucepan combine beef broth, onion, green pepper,
   parsley, and worcestershire sauce. Bring to boiling.
   Reduce heat; simmer uncovered, for 15 minutes to
   reduce liquid slightly (it should measure 3 to 3 1/2
   cups). Strain mixture, discarding vegetables. Return
   the strained broth to saucepan.
   
   In small bowl combine sherry and water; sprinkle
   gelatin over liquid and let stand to soften gelatin.
   Stir gelatin mixture into broth; heat and stir till
   gelatin dissolves. Pour into large bowl. Chill till
   set. Before serving, whip cream and curry powder just
   to stiff peaks. Break up consomme with a fork; spoon
   into serving dishes. Top each serving with a dollop of
   the whipped cream. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
