Method

Take the juice of two grape fruits and add to it the juice of an orange; grate the rind of one grape fruit and of the orange; sweeten with sufficient sugar, and add one pint of cream, mixing well. Put in the serving dish with a few pieces of gâteau de savoie or sponge cake, pour the mixture over and let this stand for at least three hours. Serve very cold.

In this case the best way to grate the rinds is to do it with pieces of sugar, which you rub on all sides all over the skins; the sugar absorbs all the flavour of the fruit, after which you simply have to pound it before you add it to the crème.
