Prep time: 20 mins     Cook time: 40 mins      Total time: 60 mins

Serves: 5

I learned this recipe from a Chilean friend.

Ingredients

1 cup red wine

1 cup sugar

2 egg whites

Instructions

• Boil the wine and sugar in small pot for 40 minutes until it thickens.

• When the time is up, pour the mixture into a water bath for a few minutes to cool.

• In a bowl, whip the 2 egg whites for about 4 to 5 minutes until small peaks form.

• Pour the wine mixture slowly into eggs, whipping as you go.

• Serve with sliced apples, bananas or walnuts.

Water bath — place a stainless steel bowl into another container which contains cold water and ice. This stops the cooking process immediately.

My First Post

Angela’s post today on washing machines reminded me of one of the many survival skills I learned from my mother-in-law a woman with many talents. She was known as Aunt Susie.

Moving to a cabin for the salmon fishery (transhumance of people and their animals) was a new experience in itself.

I knew about scrub boards. My Mom had one from the days before she could buy a washing machine, it would have been a day busting wringer washer.
