*Irish Moss Blanc Mange
In 1914 November 28 was a Saturday.
I made Irish Moss Blanc Mange!
Let’s just say I made this so you don’t have to.

If I was a Victorian era invalid, I think I would really try hard to get better soon so I wouldn’t have to eat blanc mange! Sounds awful, I was thinking it would be more like a nice white junket pudding. I remember it was mentioned a couple of times in ‘Little Women’ by Louisa May Alcott.
I think it was mostly the Irish moss that made it so bad. I’m sure it’s possible to make palatable blanc mange. But this ain’t it.
