Helen's Uncooked Plum Pudding

This might be something you'd want to make for the holidays, particularly Christmas when this dish would be most popular. If I was to make this dish I would omit the citron.

Helen's Uncooked Plum Pudding

1 cup cooked prunes
1 cup Grapenuts or rolled graham crackers*
2 cups boiling water
1/2 tsp. salt
4 Tbls. gelatin*
2 Tbls. corn syrup
4 Tbls. fruit juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup finely chopped citron
1 Tbls. lemon juice*
1/4 cup cold water
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten*
1 cup raisins

Soften gelatin in cold water. Dissolve in boiling water. Add all ingredients except egg whites. Mix thoroughly, then chill until partially set. Fold in egg whites. Pour into long shallow pan. Chill until firm. Cut in squares with sharp knife. Serve with whipped cream. Serves 8.
*Rolled graham crackers are merely crackers crushed and rolled with a rolling pin. You can use the blender.
*This would be non-flavored gelatin like Knox brand.
*Use a real lemon that you have reamed for juice.
*Since these are uncooked egg whites, use eggs from a trusted farmer so you will greatly lessen your chances of contracting salmonella from factory-farmed eggs.
