Vintage 1950s Food

These "Candleholders" my brother and I called them were a staple in our house growing up in New York. During Autumn and Winter fresh fruit was not plentiful so canned and frozen vegetables and fruits were common.

Peach Candle Salad

1-1/2 t of unflavored gelatin           1 T of lemon juice
1/4 cup of cold water                      1/2 t of grated lemon rinds
1 cup of cottage cheese                1/4 t of salt
1/2 cup of cream or milk                 6 Del Monte peach halves
1/4 cup of sugar                              Lettuce
                                                          Cranberry sauce

Dissolve gelatin in cold water over hot water. Combine next 6 ingredients and stir into gelatin. Press peach halves cut side down in large individual custard cups. Divide the cheese mixture evenly among the peach halves in the cups. Chill until firm. Unmold in lettuce cups and spoon cranberry sauce inside the center of the peach half.
