Coffee Coolness - Coffee Parfait Recipe

Another summertime coffee delight - minus the heat. (We have enough of that already, I dare say.)

1 cup milk
¼ cup Mocha coffee
Yolks 3 eggs
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
3 cup thin cream
Scald milk with coffee, and add one-half the sugar; without straining, use this mixture for making custard, with eggs, salt, and remaining sugar; add one cup cream and let stand thirty minutes; cool, strain through double cheese-cloth, add remaining cream, and freeze.
Line a mould, fill with Italian Meringue, cover, pack in salt and ice, using two parts crushed ice to one part rock salt, and let stand three hours.

Remember - post a comment if you try a recipe. Or...just if you darned well please!
